The Yankees have contacted the A's about pitcher Sonny Gray, reports Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
However, Heyman notes the Yankees are not willing to deal their top prospects in a potential deal for the right-hander.
The Yankees are potentially looking for an arm to add to the rotation after Michael Pineda learned he will likely need Tommy John surgery for a UCL tear in his pitching elbow.
In 14 starts with Oakland this year, Gray is 5-4 with a 3.72 ERA and 1.16 WHIP in 84 2/3 innings. He is arbitration eligible in 2018 and 2019, after which he is eligible for free agency.
