Yankees trade rumors: New York has spoken with Blue Jays about Marcus Stroman

Yankees trade rumors: New York has spoken with Blue Jays about Marcus Stroman The Yankees attempted to sign free agent Dallas Keuchel last week, but he ultimately agreed to a one-year deal with the Braves. “I do think (our rotation) is good enough,” Yankees manager Aaron Boone told reporters last week, via NJ.com. “There are lots of things that need to unfold, but we have the guys in that room absolutely to be elite. “If the season unfolds and we get into a situation where we continue to need, I know we’re going to always kick the tires and explore how we can improve our club.” Stroman, 28, is 3-8 with a 3.31 ERA in 14 starts in 2019.

The Yankees are looking to upgrade their roster.

Brian Cashman has been discussing potential deals with other executives and New York will try to acquire an impact player before the July 31 trade deadline, the longtime general manager said during a recent interview with WFAN.

“It’s that time of season where you’re making phone calls and you’re engaging your opposition with both leagues,” Cashman said, via NJ.com. “You’re seeing what their needs are and what your interests are and if you match up.”

The Yankees have already been linked to Blue Jays starter Marcus Stroman and Giants left-hander Madison Bumgarner, amongst others. They also reportedly attempted to land free agent Dallas Keuchel before he ultimately signed with the Braves earlier this month.

Report: Mariners trade Encarnacion, cash to Yankees for pitching prospect The Seattle Mariners have traded designated hitter Edwin Encarnacion to the New York Yankees, sources told Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic. 

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on WFAN radio Monday that he’s already started calling around, seeing what’s available. Cashman added, “Clearly the reinforcements you bring in are going to make a big difference in that endeavor. I’ve started the conversations to see what really might

Yankees GM Brian Cashman reacts to reports that Gary Sanchez could be traded to the Miami Marlins for All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto. "I would say follow my words," Cashman told reporters Sunday night in Stamford, Conn., after he rappelled down a 22-story building for a holiday tree lighting

New York has made multiple big deals before the trade deadline in recent seasons, including in 2018, when it acquired Zack Britton from the Orioles and JA Happ from the Blue Jays.

“I just know to navigate (the market) the best you can,” Cashman said. “Make sure you bring something in that’s going to have a big impact on us. We were able to do that last summer. We need to do that again this summer. Obviously, the teams we have to go through to get to where we want to go, we’ve been knocked out by the eventual world champs the last two years."

The Yankees have been decimated by injuries so far this season. Ace Luis Severino has not pitched as he has been sidelined by a right shoulder and lat issue. Outfielders Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton are also on the injured list while Miguel Andujar will miss the rest of 2019 after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum.

“The reinforcements you bring in are going to make a big difference,” Cashman said. “I’ve started the conversations to see what really might be available over time — if it’s available now, if it might shake out. Some teams are like, ‘I’m not sure if I’m buying or selling. It depends on how we look in the coming weeks or the next month.’ Some are undeclared. Some already know that destiny. I’m trying to get all that recon I can.”

The Yankees finished play Tuesday with a 41-25 record.

A much-needed victory, for both David Price and the Red Sox.
Prior to Sunday, Price had pitched six times in the Bronx for the Red Sox and was 0-6 with a 9.79 earned run average. So when Price walked off the mound in the seventh inning with a four-run lead, he would have been well within his rights to show some emotion as the fans jeered him. But all Price did was take off his cap and wipe the sweat off his brow. He then patted his heart a few times in memory of deceased friends, as always, and disappeared into the dugout. The Red Sox went on to secure an important 8-5 victory. “He was great. Good command, good mix of pitches,” manager Alex Cora said.
