The Yankees have acquired Minor League RHP Jhonny Nunez from the Washington Nationals for SS Alberto Gonzalez.

Here is a quick peek of Jhonny Nunez. I am sure more information will be on its way shortly. But from what I gather this guy is a top flight pitching prospect.

2007 Highlights: Struck out six in four innings in his season debut with Class A Hagerstown in the South Atlantic League on April 8...nabbed his first win of the season after firing five scoreless frames against Lake County on April 19...allowed one run on three hits with a season-best seven strikeouts in five frames against Lake County on April 24...went 3-0 with a 1.65 ERA over five starts from July 15-Aug. 6...held right-handed batters to a .222 average.

2006 Highlights:
Was first in Gulf Coast League in wins (6-0) and innings pitched (57); second in strikeouts (56) and third in ERA (1.58)...struck out 10 batters over six scoreless innings on Aug. 5...allowed 12 runs -- 10 earned -- in 57 innings. Named GCL Postseason All-Star.

2005 Highlights:
Made 15 appearances (eight starts) for the Dominican Summer League Santo Domingo, going 4-3 with 1.92 ERA.

2004 Hightlights:
Spent most of the season with the DSL Santo Domingo 1 team, going 2-1 with a 1.73 ERA in seven starts...while with the Santo Domingo 2 team he went 2-0 with a 4.60 ERA in four appearances (three starts).
