San Francisco Giants Trade Chris Stewart To New York Yankees, According to Report

With the final cuts being made on the San Francisco Giants 25-man opening day roster, catcher Chris Stewart found himself the odd man out on Wednesday. Without a contract with a minor league option like Eli Whiteside and the impressive spring of Hector Sanchez, Stewart wound up on the trading block, and is on his way to the New York Yankees for right handed releiver George Kontos.

Per Andrew Baggarly on Twitter:

Stewart is a career .200 hitter though is certainly known more for his catching abilities than his offensive prowess. As for Kontos, he saw time in seven games for the Yankees in 2011, sporting a 3.0 ERA in six innings pitched. Hopefully he'll find some more success out in the Big Apple.
