The Yankees have traded left-handed pitcher Nestor Cortes Jr. to the Seattle Mariners on Monday, the team announced.
The 24-year-old netted the Yankees international signing bonus pool money in the deal.
Cortes was a Rule 5 Draft acquisition from the Baltimore Orioles after the Yanks selected him in the 36th round of the 2013 MLB draft. In his lone season with the Yankees, he made 33 appearances for often banged up Bronx Bombers. He recorded a 5.67 ERA in those outings.
His overall record with the Yankees was 5-1 with 69 strikeouts over 66.2 innings pitched.
The Yankees and Mariners have connected on three trades within the past year going back to November 2018 when James Paxton made his way to New York then, while Edwin Encarnacion joined the Yankees via Seattle in June.
