The Yankees decided to hold onto their three top prospects - Luis Severino, Greg Bird and Aaron Judge - at the trade deadline, and Yankees GM Brian Cashman told Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal he is still reluctant to deal his top prospects (Nov. 6).
"I don't anticipate Severino, Bird and Judge being traded - I don't see that happening," Cashman said. "But I'm open to having dialogue, no matter what. Dialogue is a good thing."
Last offseason, Cashman made several trades in November and December. While those trades brought Didi Gregorius and Nathan Eovaldi to New York, the Yankees dealt Shane Greene, Manuel Banuelos and Martin Prado, among others.
"You have to be pretty aggressive and open to trade a good young pitcher under team control (Greene), a left-handed prospect (Banuelos) or a guy like Prado who fits you like a glove," Cashman said about last offseason's trades.
While Cashman admitted the aggressive approach from last season, he said he is "always open to anything.
"If we can find matches to make us better as we go forward," Cashman said, "we're all ears."
