With the trade deadline approaching swiftly, every team is doing their due diligence of scouting farm systems across the country. As for the Yankees, they've certainly being putting in the extra hours as GM Brian Cashman is looking to make a splash with a preference in the pitching department.

The Giants have also been doing their homework, and the Yankees' farm system is at the top of their list. In fact, they have their eyes set on one particular prospect.

Right-handed hurler Albert Abreu reportedly impressed the Giants when they took a look at the Yankees' lower-level farm teams, per NJ.com's Brendan Kuty. Abreu is the Yankees' third-best prospect, according to MLB.com, and he is sporting a 4.28 ERA over 48.1 innings with High-A Tampa this season.
