Yankees acquire Bones as compensation

NEW YORK, Aug. 29 -- The New York Yankees Thursday acquired pitcher Ricky Bones and a player to be named later from the Milwaukee Brewers as compensation for the injured status of utilityman Pat Listach, who was obtained Friday as part of a four-player deal. Bones, a 27-year-old right-hander, struggled early this season and has spent most of the second half in the bullpen.

The former All-Star is 7-14 with a 5.83 ERA in 32 games, including 23 starts. In his last five appearances, Bones is 0-3 with a 10.45 ERA. Listach was acquired from the Brewers along with left-hander Graeme Lloyd for pitcher Bob Wickman and outfielder Gerald Williams. Listach fouled a ball off his right foot in his final game with the Brewers Aug. 21 and was placed on the disabled list Monday. He has not played with New York, but will remain with the Yankees, the team announced.
