Yankees’ Brian Cashman explains decision to trade for Edwin Encarnacion, demote Clint Frazier The Yankees acquired Encarnacion from the Mariners last weekend in exchange for prospect Juan Then and cash considerations. Cashman explained why he made the trade during an interview Monday with the New York Post. “Encarnacion can impact our roster in a significant way even though (offense was) not an area of weakness,” Cashman said. “It drives that level to an even higher level and it was not cost prohibitive, so we did it. “Our job is to find ways to improve the club and there are many ways to do it.” Welcome to the Bronx, Edwin Encarnación pic.twitter.

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.

MLB trade rumors: Yankees send Brad Miller to Phillies for cash considerations

MLB trade rumors: Yankees send Brad Miller to Phillies for cash considerations Brad Miller is batting .250 with one home run and four RBIs in limited time in MLB this season. He did not take an at-bat with New York in 2019 as he was picked up as a free agent in April soon after the Indians released him. He is a veteran of seven MLB season and has also spent time with the Rays and Brewers. Philadelphia has already been active in the trade market this season, landing Jay Bruce in a deal with the Mariners for a prospect. The team has been struggling of late going 5-5 in its last 10 games and is now 1 1/2 games back of the Braves for first in the National League East.

Yankees , Astros both make prudent move with Brian McCann trade . In the first notable trade of the off-season, New York sent veteran catcher Brian McCann to Houston. It's a move that makes sense for both teams given their differing situations heading into 2017.

Brian Cashman filled some important holes on his team, but he may not be done just yet. Now the Yankees can explore the market for Betances, if that's something they want to do. At the very least, the Yankees have assembled a farm system that allows themselves to be a significant trade player .

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.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman stated the obvious again on Tuesday morning. Cashman also expressed pride in the Yankees having two players in the mix for AL Rookie of the Year, despite Cashman described the difference between his Yankees and the Red Sox as "a head scratcher," and

“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.

Corey Seager injury update: Dodgers fear shortstop suffered serious hamstring strain.
Seager was initially diagnosed with a Grade 2 hamstring strain but will undergo an MRI on Wednesday. The team fears Seager could miss 4-6 weeks with the injury. Manager Dave Roberts said he was hesitant to put a timetable on Seager’s return so soon, but gave an optimistic estimate of “two-plus” weeks. "We all feel bad for Corey,” Roberts told reporters. “Obviously, very unfortunate, the way that he’s playing and what he means to our ballclub. With what he’s done to overcome two surgeries and get into good playing shape. He’ll get back on the rehab trail and we’ll get him back as soon as we can.
