Soriano acquired by Yankees from Cubs
New York • The New York Yankees have acquired Alfonso Soriano in a trade with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, returning the seven-time All-Star to the team where he began his career.
The Cubs received minor league right-hander Corey Black and cash from New York.
Soriano was listed in the Yankees' lineup that was posted in their clubhouse two hours ahead of gametime before the trade was announced on the team's website Friday.
Soriano is batting cleanup and playing left field in Friday night's game against Tampa Bay.
