New Jersey receives:
SP Xue-qin Yuan (27, ML) - $3.4
SP Ross Hanlon (24, AAA) - minor league contract
Yuan appeared in only one game with New Jersey before being traded to Yuma a couple weeks later (7/14/08). He has since signed with Kentucky in '09. As of '09, he grades out as a poor pitcher who is best suited in a mop-up role.
Hanlon had a cup of coffee with Tempe in '08 appearing in 5 games. As of '09, he has yet toshow anything up at the big league level and may be better suited as a minor league pitcher.
