The Yankees Talk to the Diamondbacks about Lefties Robbie Ray are "dead" for now, Bob Nightengale of USA Today twitters . Ray's name has become increasingly prevalent in the rumor mill over the past week, though there is no firm indication that the club will certainly move him. Ray will be arbitrated during the 2020 season.
New York's rotation did not live up to expectations in 2019, since Luis Severino did not pitch. Lefties James Paxton and in particular J.A. Happ and CC Sabathia who is currently on the injured list, had to contend with unusually high ERA. The Yankees were associated with virtually every launch pitcher on the trading market, but up to this point, these negotiations have apparently not yet borne fruit.
Ray, 27, has an ERA of 3.91
I have to get involved in a complete demolition, but I still listen openly to some of their more desirable short-term assets.
