Pirates ship Hinske to the Yankees

According to the PG, the Pirates have traded outfielder Eric Hinske to the New York Yankees for catcher/outfielder Eric Fryer and pitcher Casey Erickson.  Erickson was a 10th round pick in 2006 and is a reliever in A with average numbers.  He has started a couple games and was a starter the previous year.  Fryer was also a 10th round pick (by Milwaukee) in 2007.  He was traded to NY for Chase Wright back in February.  He's been at high A Tampa.  Not much of a year this year, but last season posted good numbers for West Virginia (.914 OPS).  Nothing much to get too excited about, but not a bad haul for Hinske.   We can probably thank Xavier Nady for this.  lol   I guess we will get to see a little more of Steve Pearce now.
