Visa issues delay Pineda-Montero trade from being finalized 1


The trade between the Yankees and Mariners involving Jesus Montero and Michael Pineda is still not yet official because Montero is waiting for a visa issue to be cleared, according to Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports.

This really isn’t a big deal. The Yankees do have a history with the Mariners backing out of trades in the past (the Montero-Lee deal was agreed upon), but this situation is different. Expect Montero to take and pass his physical soon and there will probably be a press conference next week.
