Yankees GM Brian Cashman is still working hard to ship Sonny Gray out of the Bronx, and there are reportedly a couple teams interested in a trade.
Milwaukee has spoken to the Yankees about acquiring Gray, a source confirmed to MLB Network's Jon Morosi. San Diego is also throwing its hat into the ring for the right-hander. According to Morosi, the Padres are having ongoing discussions with the Yankees for Gray, joining a long list of teams that have inquired about the 29-year-old starter.
SNY's Andy Martino has noted that Cashman is waiting for "the right deal," as at least 11 teams have reportedly checked in with him. Cashman tendered Gray a contract this past Friday, but the pitcher is expected to be wearing another uniform before the 2019 season.
"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 last week. "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."
Gray fell short of his expectations after being traded to New York in 2017. The righty lost his spot in the rotation in August, finishing the 2018 season with a 4.90 ERA and 1.496 WHIP in 130.1 innings.
Cashman has kept busy this offseason addressing the Yankee rotation. After re-signing CC Sabathia and acquiring lefty starter James Paxton from the Mariners last month, the Yankees are continuing to pursue free agent starter Patrick Corbin. J.A. Happ also remains an option in free agency.
