Germen was traded to the Yankees on Friday for cash, ESPNNewYork.com reports.
The Yankees designated Preston Claiborne for assignment in a corresponding move. Germen got off to a strong start in 2014, with just three hits and one run allowed in his first seven appearances with the Mets, but things went south in a hurry and the right-hander finished with a 4.75 ERA and 1.45 WHIP for the season. He will still likely compete for one of the team's final bullpen spots in the spring.
