The Angels have dealt 34-year old righty swinging outfielder Vernon Wells to the New York Yankees for 21-year old lefty swinging outfielder Exicardo Cayones and 24-year old lefty reliever/starter Kramer Sneed.  Wells played in 77 games for the Angels last year and he was 56 for 243 (.230 avg, .682 OPS) with 36 runs scored, 11 homers, 29 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  He played in 208 games in his two years with the Angels and he was 166 of 748 (.222 avg, .667 OPS) with 96 runs scored, 36 homers, 95 RBIs and 12 stolen bases.  The Yankees are going to pick up $14 million of the $42 million owed to Wells over the next two years and that is why the Angels didn’t get good prospects back.  Cayones played in 47 games in A-ball for the Yankees last year and he was 36 of 158 (.228 avg, .665 OPS) with 22 runs scored, 1 homer, 15 RBIs and 7 stolen bases.  He has now played in 196 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 164 of 629 (.261 avg, .730 OPS) with 99 runs scored, 2 homers, 83 RBIs and 21 stolen bases.  Sneed pitched in 31 games (4 starts) in A-ball for the Yankees last year and he was 0-7 with a 5.37 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP.  He has now pitched in 76 games (21 starts) in his first three years in the minors and he is 6-19 with a 4.39 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP.
