Yankees acquire RHP A.J. Cole from Nationals for cash

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Yankees have acquired pitcher A.J. Cole from the Washington Nationals, hoping the once-promising righty can find his rhythm in a new place.

The Yankees got Cole for $75,000, a move they announced Monday night following a 14-1 win over Minnesota. Right-hander David Hale was designated for assignment after pitching two scoreless innings to finish off the rout.

The 26-year-old Cole was cut by the Nationals on Friday. He was 1-1 with a 13.06 ERA in four games.
