NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Nationals continued to stay busy at the Winter Meetings, acquiring right-hander Tyler Clippard from the Yankees for right-handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo on Monday night, according to a baseball source. The news was first reported by The Washington Post.

Clippard, 22, made his Major League debut in 2007 and went 3-1 with a 6.33 ERA in six starts. Albaladejo also made his Major League debut this past season, giving up three runs in 14 1/3 innings out of the bullpen.

Nationals general manager Jim Bowden was not available for comment on the deal, which is pending physicals.
