The New York Yankees tonight acquired outfielder Austin Kearns from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for a player to be named later or cash.

Kearns, 30, batted .272 (82-for-301) with 18 doubles, eight home runs, 42 RBI and 34 walks in 84 games with the Indians this season. He has made appearances at all three outfield positions in 2010 (68 games in left field, five games in centerfield and 14 games in right field). Kearns has hit .250 vs. left-handed pitchers this season, going 25-for-100 with two home runs, while batting .284 (57-for-201) with six home runs against right-handers.

Selected by Cincinnati in the first round of the 1998 First-Year Player Draft (seventh overall), he has appeared in 926 career games, posting a .258 batting average with 173 doubles, 113 home runs and 464 RBI over parts of nine Major League seasons with Cincinnati (2002-06), Washington (2006-09) and Cleveland (2010).
