The New York Yankees have acquired former top prospect lefty Miguel Sulbaran in exchange for infielder Eduardo Nunez, reports CBS Sports.

Both the Minnesota Twins and the Yankees announced the deal on Monday evening and will see Nunez assigned to Triple-A Rochester where he can play shortstop, second and third base, providing plenty of depth.

In three big-league seasons, Nunez owns career stats of .267/.313/.379 (87 OPS+).

Nunez missed out on the last roster spot to Yangervis Solarte this season.

Sulbaran, 20, spent the whole of last season in the Low-A Midwest League and has a career ERA of 3.15. He also has a K/BB ratio of 3.48 in 55 career games, 45 of which have been starts.

In 2013, playing for the Class A Great Lakes and Cedar Rapids, he was 9-4 with a 2.96 ERA in 122 2/3 innings.

The former top prospect will join his third organisation in the New York Yankees having previously been part of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Minnesota Twins systems.
