Yankees
swap
Mump hrey

NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees
acquired outfielder Omar Moreno,
unhappy playing for the Astros, in a
pair of waiver deals yesterday that also
had outfielder Jerry Mumphrey going
to Houston from New York.
Moreno, who signed with Houston last
winter as a reentry draft free agent,
had been outspoken about his desire to
be traded after a dispute last month
with Manager Bob Lillis. Moreno, a lef-
t-handed hitter, was upset at being ben-
ched when the Astros faced left-
handed pitching..
HE HAD A clause in his contract
which paid him an extra $214 for each at
bat.

Moreno previously played eight
seasons for the Pittsburgh Pirates,
leading the National League in stolen
bases in 1978 and 1979. Until this year,
he missed only four games since the
middle of the 1979 season.
Mumphrey, 30, returns to the
National League, as the Yankees said
he requested, where he previously
played for the St. Louis Cardinals and
San Diego Padres. He was acquired
from the Padres by the Yankees in
April, 1981ina six-player trade.-
YANKEE third base coach Don
Zimmer told Mumphrey before Wed-
nesday's 8-3 victory over the Toronto

Blue Jays that he might be traded to
Houston. Mumphrey then went out and
got a triple in three official bats and
made a diving catch in centerfield on
Buck Martinez drive with m an on first
in the fifth inning. The deal was com-
pleted following the game's last out.
"It's a little sad in leaving, but I don't
have any gripes," said Mumphrey. "I
played well. Maybe now I'll come into
my own."
Mumphrey said while he had never
been traded so late in the season, "It
shouldn't be that hard in adjusting. I've
been in the National League before. I
know the players."
