Trade Deadline?

I'm curious what everyone is thinking about the upcoming trade deadline (Aug 2nd). 



Do you think the Yankees should be in "go for it" mode?




Would you be willing to give up a top 5 prospect to impove this years team? 




What areas are most critical to upgrade? 




Do you think the Yankees make a big splash before the TDL?

If they are going to limit Severino and Cortes' innings I expect they will trade for a starter unless they are confident that they already have in house starting pitching options.


I would like for them to upgrade from Gallo and or Hicks,  but don't know if they will. 


As for if the Yankees should make trades to upgrade, as usual it depends on what other teams are asking in return. The Yankees shouldn't overpay.

Max, I think it's really difficult to be a buyer at the TDL and not over pay.

Got an up close view of both Hicks and Gallo last night. Sorry but they are pretty bad. Yeah I know Hicks at a big homer last week but that is few and far between. He is really bad with RISP. First 2 times up last night he was caught looking and in the 6th run inning we had he failed to bring in a runner with 2nd and 3rd and one out. As for Gallo put it this way. he made 2 outs in the 6 run inning. Need to upgrade if we can.

With Schmidt around and German coming back, I don't know that they need a SP.   Depending on how guys like Chapman, Loaisiga and Britton are coming along, they may not need pen help either.   I would bet if they do make a trade for a pitcher, it will be more like a Clay Holmes kind of move where they pick up someone who's under the radar that they think they can improve.


I could see them take a look at outfielders, but I don't know that they'll be willing to overpay.   Juan Soto would be the dream acquisition but would literally cost the farm - if he's available at all.   Benintendi would fit nicely, as would Ian Happ.


A solid bat they could look at and maybe not pay too much for would be David Peralta.  He's not flashy but has a long track record of solid hitting as a LH bat and has a 115 OPS+ so far in 2022.   But they don't absolutely need to make a deal IMO, and Cashman won't if the asking prices are too high.

I'm not up on what kind of contract Benintendi has for a contract, or if he'd just be a rental, but if he could be had without giving up too much, I think he would compliment our team pretty well... But I've never seen any team give the Yankees any breaks, so I'm not looking for KC to give us one with Benintendi...

Benintendi is a FA at the end of the season. He is currently hitting .299/3/26 with a .755 OPS.  Only 71 HRs over 6+ seasons in the majors and not much speed.  An upgrade over Hicks and Gallo?  Yes, some, but not worth any top level prospects.   Interestingly, Benintendi's career BA with RISP is over .300, but he is at something like .239, no HRs with RISP this season.  He would fit in quite well o0n the 2021 Yankees,

What areas are most critical to upgrade? OF.  Starting pitching is not a critical area right now, but Severino and Cortes will certainly have innings limits so the qustion is are you comfortable with German, Schmidt, Sears and maybe Waldechuk or Wysnewski (sp?) taking up the slack or being full time replacement for a SP on the IL for a month or so?



Do you think the Yankees make a big splash before the TDL?  no.  They might try to upgrade Higashioka behind Trevino.  I expect Gallo to be traded in what will be primarily a salary dump not bringing back an every day OF.

Rob, if the Yankees trade Gallo. Who in your opinion do you think the Yankees would put in LF?

They keep running Hicks out there.  I think you can make an argument that Judge now is the better CF defensively but do they want to keep Judge in CF (extra "wear and tear")?  He seems happy with playing CF (I think he was a CF in college).  Then there is always Andujar.  I read that Hicks hasn't played RF since 2017 and Andujar probably not an option for RF.  And how often do they want Stanton playing the field?  So dumping Gallo isn't all that straight forward.  I think that they will but I will not be surprised if he is still a Yankee on August 3rd.
