According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees have put a claim on their former closer David Robertson, and will find out by 2:00 p.m. ET if they have any chance of acquiring him. The White Sox haven’t expressed an emergency of getting rid of their players despite being seven games out of the second wild card spot, and the White Sox don’t seem to regret their $38 Million investment.
Robertson has a four-team no trade list but the Yankees aren’t one of those teams. Robertson came up in the Yankees draft system, won a World Series in 2009 and replaced Mariano Rivera when he retired.
Robertson is 5-3 with a 2.70 ERA and 27 saves in 2015.
Update: The Chicago White Sox have pulled David Robertson from the waiver market prior to the 2:00 p.m. ET waiver deadline.
