The New York Yankees and Pittsburgh Pirates continue to engage in trade talks surrounding Yankees righthander A.J. Burnett.
A source told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that discussions between the team were ongoing Friday night.
ESPN has reported that the Yankees were seeking Garrett Jones in exchange for Burnett, but the newspaper report said Jones was not part of the deal.
Burnett has two years remaining on a five-year, $82.5 contract he signed prior to the 2009 season.
New York has added two starters - Michael Pineda and Hiroki Kuroda - in the offseason, making Burnett more than expendable.
Burnett went 11-11 with a 5.15 ERA last season and is 34-35 in three seasons with New York.
He has been particularly ineffective in the months of August and September, winning one start in August in his tenure in New York.
