A man was convicted of assault Thursday for punching Yankees pitcher David Wells and knocking out two of his teeth during an early morning fight in a diner.

Rocco Graziosa was acquitted of two other charges after a weeklong trial in Manhattan Criminal Court. The jury deliberated less than three hours.

The 27-year-old Graziosa faces up to a year in jail when he is sentenced Jan. 15. He will remain free on $1,500 bail and was ordered to stay away from Wells.

The Yankees' star was not in court Thursday, and Graziosa showed no emotion when the verdict was read. He and defense attorney Harry Mazurek had no comment.

Wells' lawyer, Mel Sachs, didn't know whether his client wanted Graziosa sent to jail but said after the verdict that Wells "did want to make sure that justice was done.''

Sachs added that Wells showed "marvelous self-restraint'' during the Sept. 7 fight and "acted like a true Yankee, with courage and conviction.''

Graziosa was acquitted of harassment and possession of a weapon -- a butter knife he was accused of waving at Wells after knocking the pitcher to the ground on Sept. 7.
