After repeated attempts to try to trade troubled starter A.J. Burnett this offseason the Yankees may have finally found a trade partner in the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Here are the latest rumors:
- The Pirates are willing to pay $10 million of the $33 million Burnett is owed, but the Yankees want them to pay more, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
- The Yankees also want an “ok prospect” back which the Pirates haven’t yet agreed to, says Heyman.
- Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports said the two sides are not close to a deal, but they haven’t hit a wall yet either. Talks continue.
- Garrett Jones, whom the Yankees asked about, will not be included in any deal, according to Heyman.
