The New York Yankees went from having a quiet offseason of no deals to making two deals that have gotten a lot of people talking.

The Yankees gave up their up-and-coming rookie catcher Jesus Montero and relief pitcher Hector Noesi to the Seattle Mariners for starter Michael Pineda and 19-year-old pitcher Jose Campos.

The Yankees also made a deal that same day, in the same hour, acquiring Los Angeles Dodgers free agent starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda for one year, $10 million.
