NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Yankees have acquired Alfonso Soriano in a trade with the Chicago Cubs on Friday, returning the seven-time All-Star to the team where he began his career.

The Cubs received minor league right-hander Corey Black and gave cash to New York.

Soriano was listed in the Yankees' lineup that was posted in the clubhouse two hours ahead of Friday night's game against Tampa Bay - before the trade was announced on the team's website.

Soriano is batting cleanup and playing left field.
