It’s not a secret that the Yankees are in the market for starting pitching help. The Yankees have been linked to Toronto Blue Jays ace Marcus Stroman, who is expected to be traded prior to the July 31st trade deadline.
Blue Jays like Deivi Garcia. Belief is Yankees would only trade him for Syndergaard or someone they value similarly.
According to MLB Network’s Jon Heyman, the Blue Jays have shown interest in Deivi Garcia, the Yankees fourth-ranked prospect according to MLB.com. Garcia has recently been promoted to Triple-A, and there is some belief that he could possibly join the big league club at some point this season.
Although the Blue Jays have shown interest in the 20-year-old right hander, Heyman believes that the Yankees would only trade him in the right deal. Heyman cites New York Mets right hander Noah Syndergaard as a player who the Yankees would be willing to trade Garcia for.
Last year, the Yankees and Blue Jays agreed to a trade deadline deal that sent J.A. Happ to the Bronx. Even though they are in the same division, the two sides haven’t been shy to make deals together in the past.
Based off the numerous reports, it appears that the Yankees will only trade Garcia for certain players. Can the Yankees make a trade for Stroman without including their top pitching prospect, or will they look elsewhere to address their pitching needs?
