MLB Rumors: Yankees Could Be Buyers And Sellers Before Trade Deadline

by NESN Staff

The New York Yankees don’t have a winning roster, and they aren’t exactly the type of franchise to rebuild, given their wealth and history.

So what will the Bronx Bombers do before Monday’s non-waiver MLB trade deadline? A little buying and selling, perhaps.

The Yankees already traded closer Aroldis Chapman to the Chicago Cubs for a package of players. It’s also possible they could move left-handed reliever Andrew Miller before the deadline as contending teams continue to pursue bullpen help.

First baseman Mark Teixeira, outfielder Carlos Beltran and starting pitcher Ivan Nova all will be unrestricted free agents this winter, and the Yankees would be smart to consider trading any of them if the right offer comes along.
