NEW YORK - The trade between the New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners involving young hurler Michael Pineda and blue-chip prospect Jesus Montero became official Monday.

The Yankees acquired the 6-foot-7 Pineda and right-hander Jose Campos from the Mariners for Montero, a highly-touted catching prospect, and righty Hector Noesi.

Pineda, who turned 23 last week, made the All-Star team as a rookie last year and finished the 2011 season with a 9-10 record and a 3.74 earned run average over 28 starts.

Campos, 19, went 5-5 with a 2.32 ERA and recorded a team-high 85 strikeouts for short-season Single-A Everett.

Ranked as the third-best prospect in all of baseball entering the 2011 season, the 22-year-old Montero was a late-season call-up for New York and hit .328 with four home runs in 18 games.

Noesi made his major league debut last season, going 2-2 with a 4.47 ERA in 30 games (two starts) with the Yankees. He turns 25 on Thursday.
