The Yankees have multiple offers on the table for RHP Sonny Gray and are in the process of weighing them, according to major league sources.
GM Brian Cashman has been open about Gray's need for a change of scenery, after the righty struggled in the Bronx. Despite selling low, the Yankees should bring back some legitimate talent in the trade, because of his upside, and the ever-present need for pitching.
The Yanks are pursuing multiple starting pitcher acquisitions, like Patrick Corbin, J.A. Happ and James Paxton, but they appear on track to trade Gray first.
Cashman said at the GM Meetings that he had received interest from "a lot of teams" about Gray but wanted to wait for "the right deal."
"Once we feel comfortable with the return, we'll make the decision to move him," Cashman said in early November. "But the plan is to move him because I don't want to keep going through the process of something that won't work here."
In one and a half seasons as a Yankee, Gray went 15-16 with a 4.51 ERA, allowing 104 runs (98 earned) in 195 2/3 innings. In 2018, Gray went 11-9 with a 4.90 ERA in 30 games (23 starts), getting bumped from the rotation midway through the year.
