tick. Tock. Brian Cashman is on the clock to add pitching before the close on July 31. Yesterday went by without a deal, and the most significant transaction of the day led Jason Vargas to the Phillies. The Mets have a week, right? Hopefully, the Yankees are accelerating the pace today.
As it is sometimes difficult to stay up to date, the Pinstrip Lane will publish a series of posts with all Yankees rumors over the next three days. It is important to remember that these are rumors and that you should take them with a grain of salt. Teams often set up and selectively release information in ways that benefit them.
Rumors of the Day (July 30, 201
- 9:23 ET: Peter Gammon stated on Twitter that he has heard of a possible barter between the Yankees and Diamondbacks at which Clint Frazier and Robbie Ray and Archie Bradley are involved. For some time, the idea of pitching has been circulated as a possible idea, and we could see it coming to fruition.
- 9:23 ET: According to Andy Martino the Yankees still belong to several teams. "In play" for Mets right-hander Zack Wheeler. This assumes that the Mets would do business with the bombers, and who knows about it.
- 9:23 ET: The Giants expect them to cling to left-hander Madison Bumgarner, Alex Pavlovic says. The Yankees were always split at the 29-year-old, but the loss of the Bumgarner option makes navigation on the market much more difficult.
- 9:23 ET: The Yankees are increasingly pessimistic about their chances of adding a pitcher, reports Joel Sherman. You could pad up the bullpen and call it a day.
