On Friday, the Yankees tendered all 40 contracts on their 40-man roster. However, one of those players that was tendered a contract is expected to be out the door soon.
GM Brian Cashman has made it clear he is working hard to trade RHP Sonny Gray, and get a good package in return for the 28-year-old. Since Gray came over in 2017, he has fallen short of his expectations, and the Yankees want to find him a new home where he will hope to resurrect his dominance on the bump.
And the Yankees have several suitors around the league for Gray. SNY's Andy Martino noted Cashman saying "a lot of teams" were inquiring about Gray, but he wanted to wait for "the right deal." There are reportedly 11 teams on the list, with the Reds and A's among them.
"I've had a lot of interesting dialogue, whether it's for prospects, whether it's for major leauge, our need for their need," Cashman told The Post's Ken Davidoff. "Whether it's part of a complicated, larger situation that involves prospects and major leaguers going both ways. So I think we've had a little bit of experience with all aspects of it."
The move is certainly coming before the new season begins. It is just a matter of when Cashman believes the best deal is in front of him to strike on.
