The New York Yankees acquired right-handed pitchers Richard Dotson and Scott Nielsen from the Chicago White Sox for outfielder Dan Pasqua, catcher Mark Salas and left-handed pitcher Steve Rosenberg.
Dotson, 28, had an 11-12 record with a 4.17 earned-run average last season. His best year was 1983 when he had a 22-7 record. Nielsen, 28, rejoins the Yankees after one year with the White Sox organization. He had a 3-5 record and a 6.24 ERA in 19 games with Chicago and was 3-4, 3.97 with Hawaii of the Pacific Coast League.
Pasqua, 26, batted .233 with 17 home runs and 42 RBI for the Yankees last season. Salas, 26, who came to New York from Minnesota June 6 in the Joe Niekro deal, had a combined .250 average, six homers and 21 RBI with the two clubs . . .
New Baltimore Orioles general manager Roland Hemond said he expects disgruntled first baseman Eddie Murray to remain with the team.
"One of the reasons I came here is because Eddie Murray plays for the Baltimore Orioles," Hemond said. "He's what baseball men dream about. Murray used to kill us. If I had Eddie Murray on the White Sox, I'd still be in Chicago."
