With the trade deadline a mere three days away, here are the latest trade rumors, notes and tidbits surrounding the Yankees.
— The Yankees are still interested in John Danks and he continues to be a top possibility for the ball club, reports Jon Heyman. The Yankees were discussing a potential deal with the White Sox last week but the trade talks haven’t increased since then.
— As of yesterday, the Yankees aren’t talking to the Padres about a possible deal for Ian Kennedy, although it would seem Kennedy could be the perfect fit.
— The Yankees also aren’t interested in talks to acquire Cliff Lee, considering he just came off the disabled list. If the Yankees do want a chance to acquire Lee, they could do it through waivers in August.
— The Yankees aren’t interested in A.J. Burnett.
— If the Yankees are interested in Jon Lester, they are more likely to sign him in the offseason rather than trade for him as a rental.
