Cubs deal versatile Lillibridge to Yankees

CHICAGO -- The Cubs dealt utility infielder Brent Lillibridge to the Yankees on Friday for a player to be named or cash considerations.

Lillibridge was batting .281 in 48 games at Triple-A Iowa. He opened the season with the Cubs, but went 1-for-24 in nine games, and was sent to the Minors.

The versatile Lillibridge, 29, was batting .317 this month. He's played all infield positions plus the outfield, and has spent time with the White Sox, Cubs, Indians, Braves, and Red Sox.

He signed as a free agent with the Cubs in January.
