The Yankees reportedly rejected a trade that could have brought outfielders Jason Heyward and Melvin Upton to New York, according to Jon Heyman.

New York expressed interest in Heyward and shortstop Andrelton Simmons when they were with the Atlanta Braves in 2014, Heyman reports, and turned down a blockbuster that would have sent several top prospects to Atlanta.

The Braves floated a deal to the Yankees that would have sent Heyward, Simmons, Upton, RHP David Carpenter and 3B Chris Johnson to New York in exchange for RHP Luis Severino, OF Aaron Judge, catcher Gary Sanchez, RHP Ian Clarkin and RHP Manny Banuelos.
