CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs announced Friday they traded utility man Brent Lillibridge to the New York Yankees for a player to be named later and cash considerations. Lillibridge hasn't been on the 40-man roster since April, after he was designated for assignment and ultimately outrighted to Triple-A Iowa. In 48 games at Triple-A, Lillibridge was batting .281 with five home runs, 13 RBIs and a .331 on-base percentage. In joining the Yankees organization, Lillibridge now has a chance to play for the home team in the stadium where he made one of his biggest splashes in the major leagues.
