This morning, the Yankees revealed they had spent the entire night talking with the San Diego Padres about a potential deal for Craig Kimbrel. But if talks for Kimbrel fall through, the Yankees could look to another reliever for the bullpen.
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweeted the Yankees could look at Miami Marlins reliever Carter Capps should the Kimbrel talks fall through. Capps is known as a reliever who can notch strikeouts when needed, and according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees are willing to move SS prospect Jorge Mateo in the right deal. If Kimbrel falls through would getting Carter Capps be considered the right deal in using Mateo?
Capps is 1-0 with a 1.21 ERA, 56 strikeouts and a 0.742 WHIP in 29.2 innings.
