The Yankees were said to be searching for left-handed hitting outfielders, and they landed one on Tuesday.

The Bombers acquired outfielder Alex Verdugo in a trade with the rival Boston Red Sox, according to multiple reports.

Pitchers Richard Fitts, Greg Weissert and Nicholas Judice are reportedly heading back to Boston.

Verdugo slashed .264/.324/.421 with 13 homers and 54 RBIs last season.
