The Yankees and Athletics are reportedly discussing a trade for Sonny Gray, that also includes first baseman Yonder Alonso. That would pretty much fill the remaining holes the Yankees had on the roster after already dealing for third baseman Todd Frazier as well as relievers David Robertson and Tommy Kahnle, and that’s also why this deal makes too much sense for New York to not happen. The Yankees are loaded with prospects. They already have quite a bit of youth on the big-league roster, too. Their previous deals, both in the offseason and in-season, show a general manager who doesn’t want to give up on the future just to help the present. Adding Gray wouldn’t change any of that: He’s only 27,

Todd Frazier?will always remember his first home at-bat as a member of the New York Yankees.? And not for all good reasons.? Frazier, acquired by the Yankees last week as part of a deal with the Chicago White Sox, came up with the bases loaded in the second inning Tuesday night and proceeded to bounce into a triple play against the Cincinnati Reds. With rookie Reds starter Luis Castillo on the mound at Yankee Stadium, Matt Holliday singled to right, Didi Gregorius singled to right and Chase Headley singled to left to load the bases in the second. Frazier, batting seventh, hit a hard grounder up the middle. Reds shortstop Jose Peraza fielded it, stepped on second and threw to first. Gregorius,

As Sonny Gray prepares to take the mound against Toronto on Tuesday night, there’s not a hotter name in the rumor mill as the major leagues’ non-waiver trade deadline approaches Monday. Yet there’s a contradiction attached to the A’s right-hander. He is simultaneously the likeliest Athletic to be traded, and the toughest to pry away simply because of what the team will demand in return. The markets for first baseman Yonder Alonso and second baseman Jed Lowrie haven’t developed as expected, to the point that you wonder how much the A’s could even get in return for them right now. That focuses the spotlight squarely on Gray, 27, who has posted a 1.62 ERA over his last five starts and comes with

When the Yankees traded for Todd Frazier last week, the Boston Red Sox were expected to mine the market for a third base upgrade of their own. Instead, president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski went in the opposite direction, calling up top prospect Rafael Devers to man the hot corner. The Red Sox’s regular third baseman, 26-year-old Deven Marrero, has hit just .216/.258/.324 this year, good for a 53 OPS+.

Aaron Judge leads the major leagues in home runs in his first full season. Prior to the night of 10 July, Aaron Judge, the New York Yankees’ 6ft 7in, 282lbs rookie right fielder, had already hammered out a reputation as a prodigious young slugger, having blasted 30 home runs, at an average of 416 feet, in the Yankees’ first 89 games.
