Trade Rumors: Yankees Have Untouchable Prospects

Via Joel Sherman of the NY Post:

Multiple execs say unless no-doubt No. 1-ish SP shows on market Yankees have made clear won’t move Banuelos, Betances, Montero, Romine.

This is the way it should be. Maybe being overprotective of Austin Romine is a little bit much, but holding on to Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances, and Jesus Montero should be no-brainers at this point. Ubaldo Jimenez and James Shields seem to be the only big name pitchers available. If the Yankees can work out a deal for one of them then the situation changes.

One Response to Trade Rumors: Yankees Have Untouchable Prospects

  1. David K. says:

    Not moving Montero is good but are they ever going to bring him up? What could possibly be a reason for them to have kept Montero in the minors up to this point? Posada, Martin and Cervelli are not really hitting, so why not take a chance like just about any other well run team would have done already and bring up Montero and work him into the lineup five days a week as catcher and DH. The only thing I can think of is that if he plays terribly it would lower his trade value. But if he is really the next Manny Ramirez or Edgar Martinez type hitter, why not take a chance. I'd hate to see him become a great hitter on another team.
