Yankees Trade Rumors: Sonny Gray A Target For New York Before Deadline

26 Juillet 2017

Oakland Athletics starting pitcher Sonny Gray is one of the most coveted arms now on the market with less than a week remaining until Major League Baseball's trade deadline.

The New York Yankees already made a splash by acquiring Todd Frazier, David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle from the Chicago White Sox, and they might not be done yet.

When the deal was first being talked about, many believed the Yankees would hit a snag with the A's possibly asking for top prospects Gleyber Torres or Clint Frazier, two players NY apparently aren't too keen on parting ways with.

Gray checks all the boxes the Yankees are looking for in a pitcher. That's why, according to ESPN's Buster Olney, New York and Oakland are having continued discussions about the right-hander.

On Tuesday, Mark Feinsand over at MLB.com reported that the Yankees are making progress toward a deal for Gray and they now seem to be the clear-cut frontrunners for his services on the mound. NY now holds the first AL Wild-Card spot.

It's hard to believe that the Yankees would part with their top two prospects. Florial is now ranked as the Yankees' fifth-best prospect in the minors by MLB Pipeline.

Gray, 27, has been called "arguably the most valuable asset available on the starting pitching market", and is in high demand from a number of teams in search of pitching help at the top of their rotation. Trading another promising young player, however, isn't out of the question.

The Oakland right hander entered Tuesday's start against the Toronto Blue Jays with a 3.66 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and a 8.4 K/9 ratio.
