Yankees Acquire Justin Maxwell From Nats

NEW YORK (AP) – The Yankees have acquired outfielder Justin Maxwell from the Washington Nationals for minor league right-hander Adam Olbrychowski.

The 27-year-old Maxwell has a .201 average in three big league seasons with nine homers and 26 RBIs. He batted .144 with three homers and 12 RBIs in 104 at-bats for Washington last year, and hit.287 with six homers and 21 RBIs for Triple-A Syracuse.

The 25-year-old Olbrychowski was 3-2 with a 3.90 ERA in one start and 31 relief appearances last year for Class A Tampa and Double-A Trenton.

New York cleared a roster spot by designating outfielder Jordan Parraz for assignment Wednesday.

Washington also sent right-hander Shairon Martis outright to Syracuse. He will attend big league spring training.
