Yesterday, we learned that the Yankees are considering themselves out on Adam Dunn. The price on Scott Downs is ridiculously high. They offered the Diamondbacks Joba and two others for Dan Haren, but the Diamondbacks didn’t bite (which is surprising, considering the package they did get back from the Angels).
The Yankees have been linked to utility guys Wes Helms and Willie Bloomquist, but those guys aren’t very attractive and I’d assume that the Yankees would sooner try out Eduardo Nunez than ship prospects off and spend bigger money for guys who are vets.
I’ve been saying this all trade-season and it looks like it’s going to be true: the Yankees non-waiver deadline will not produce a big splash. That doesn’t mean they won’t do anything.
What seems interesting is that aside from Scott Downs, the Yankees haven’t been linked to many other relievers for a while. Craig Breslow was mentioned a while ago, but it’s been relatively quiet on the reliever front aside from Downs. Considering how Brian Cashman operates, this probably bodes well for the Yankees. Especially with Cash, it’s the deals about which you DON’T hear that end up getting done. So, let’s keep our eyes and ears open for the next two days and see who lands in and out of pinstripes.
