NEW YORK (AP) — The Yankees have acquired right-hander Gonzalez Germen from the Mets for cash in the first trade in a decade between the New York rivals.

The 27-year-old had a 4.75 ERA in 25 relief appearances this year with the Mets and was 3-1 with six saves and a 2.38 ERA in 18 games for Triple-A Las Vegas. He is 1-2 with one save and a 4.31 ERA in two years with the Mets.

The Yankees designated right-hander Preston Claiborne for assignment Friday to clear a roster spot.

The previous trade between the rivals had been when the Yankees obtained Mike Stanton for Felix Heredia in a swap of left-handers on Dec. 3, 2004.
