While the Yankees have been looking at Manny Machado as an infielder to take over while Didi Gregorius recovers from Tommy John surgery, they could also be in the trade market for Reds infielder Scooter Gennett.
The Yankees and Reds had "a little talk" regarding Gennett, according to Fancred's Jon Heyman, although it is unclear how significant of a talk it was.
The 28-year-old Gennett, who recorded a .310/.357/.490 batting line with 23 home runs and 92 RBIs in 154 games with Cincinnati last season, has one more year of arbitration eligibility before he can become a free agent.
He has spent most of his career at second base, although he has sparingly played third base and the corner outfield positions. He ranked first in the National League in range factor per game last season, however he also committed the most errors among NL second basemen in 2016.
With Gregorius out an extended amount of time, the Yankees have been looking at various infield options.
The most prominent name, of course, has been Machado, the 26-year-old four-time All-Star who hit .297 with 37 home runs and 107 RBIs last year with the Orioles and Dodgers.
But while Yankees GM Brian Cashman has had multiple conversations with Machado's agent, Dan Lozano, the Yankees aren't "all-in" on him and won't enter a bidding war for him, according to SNY.tv's Andy Martino.
The Yankees have also looked at several other potential infielders, including free agent Josh Harrison.
Though Gennett has primarily played second base, the Yankees could shift Gleyber Torres to shortstop, the position he mostly played while he was coming up in the minors.
New York and Cincinnati have also been in trade discussions for RHP Sonny Gray.
