UPDATE: The Yankees have missed out on another starting pitcher as David Price has been traded to the Toronto Blue Jays, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Per Heyman, the deal includes Daniel Norris. Jon Morosi of Fox Sports adds that it also “likely” includes Anthony Alford as well.
ORIGINAL POST: With their refusal to trade four of their top prospects, the Yankees have missed out on Johnny Cueto, Mat Latos and Cole Hamels, but now it seems the Yankees will miss out on one other pitcher.
Accord to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees have contacted the Detroit Tigers regarding David Price, but their reluctance to trade Luis Severino leaves the Yankees “little to no chance” in acquiring Price. The Toronto Blue Jays have become front runners in the Price sweepstakes, following the Yankees refusal to trade their top prospects.
Price is 9-4 with a 2.53 ERA and a 1.110 WHIP in 146 innings for the Detroit Tigers.
