Trade Rumors: Yankees Unwilling to Give Up Big Prospects for Relievers 4

Yankees unwilling to trade big prospect for reliever; think they’ll be OK in pen. seek SP but still see Ubaldo as longshot

With Rafael Soriano‘s return looming the Yankees haven’t been attached to too many relievers in rumors. The few we have heard about are mostly lefties with the exception of Padres’ pitchers Heath Bell and Mike Adams. That doesn’t mean that Brian Cashman doesn’t have other leads he is following, he most certainly does. It just means that the Yankees aren’t likely to land any big names.

Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports tweeted earlier today that the Yankees are still talking to the Padres, but with half a dozen teams interested in Bell and Adams and the Yankees looking to hold on to their bigger prospects, talk is cheap. I expect they will keep on trying to add a lefty all the way up until the last minute before the deadline though.
