TAMPA, Fla. -- The New York Yankees have traded pitcher Sergio Mitre to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for outfielder Chris Dickerson.
Mitre began spring training as a candidate for one of two spots available in the Yankees' starting rotation. He has allowed seven runs and 13 hits, including three homers, over 11 innings this spring.
The 30-year-old right-hander spent parts of the past two seasons with the Yankees and posted a record of 3-6 with a 5.03 earned run average in 39 games, including 12 starts.
Mitre has also pitched for the Cubs and Marlins since breaking into the majors in 2003. He owns a career mark of 13-29 with a 5.27 ERA in 117 games, 64 of which have been starts.
Dickerson has appeared in 173 games over three seasons with Cincinnati and Milwaukee. He was acquired by the Brewers last August in the deal that sent veteran outfielder Jim Edmonds to the Reds.
The 28-year-old California native is a career .267 hitter with eight homers and 35 runs batted in. In 2010, he hit .206 in 45 combined games with the Reds and Brewers.
