The news of the trade was first reported by SI.com, which said the Yankees would be receiving Double-A pitcher Clayton Beeter. Gallo, a two-time All-Star, including last season when he was acquired by the Yankees in a trade with the Texas Rangers , has struggled badly this season. While he has 12 home runs and 24 RBIs, he has a .159 average and has struck out 106 times in 233 at-bats.

Beeter, a 23-year-old right-hander, is 0-3 with a 5.75 ERA in 18 appearances (16 starts) for Tulsa this season.
