MLB.com is keeping track of all the latest Yankees-related free agent and trade rumors right here.

July 31: Yanks eyeing Montas, Mahle, Robertson and more

A’s right-hander Frankie Montas is the Yankees’ focus in the starting pitcher trade market. That is crystal clear by now, and that’s what MLB Network insider Jon Heyman wrote in the New York Post on Sunday. Heyman adds that while they would like to hang on to No. 1 prospect Anthony Volpe, the Yankees are “seemingly willing” to deal No. 2 prospect Oswald Peraza, another shortstop, to an Oakland club that is looking to land high-end prospects in return for Montas.

The Dodgers and Cardinals are also pushing hard for Montas. However, the Yankees may have an edge in the bidding as both of those clubs are also pursuing Juan Soto and may not have the prospect depth to land both players. Heyman writes that there is “no traction” in talks between the Yanks and Nationals for Soto as the Nats don’t view Volpe as a star.

Although Montas is the Yankees’ main man, they have their sights on other pitchers in case they lose out on him. Reds right-hander Tyler Mahle and Pirates lefty Jos Quintana are on New York’s radar, per Heyman. The former is under contract through 2023 while the latter would be a rental for the rest of this season.

Pablo Lpez, Martn Prez, Zach Plesac, Tarik Skubal and Noah Syndergaard could also be in play for teams that need rotation help, but Heyman writes that the Yankees have talked about only Syndergaard from that group, and he is considered “the fallback of fallbacks.”

The Yankees are also exploring the reliever market and are targeting former Yankee David Robertson, who is having a standout year as the Cubs’ closer. He is a free agent following this season and would bolster a ‘pen that could use a boost in the wake of Michael King’s season-ending elbow injury and Clay Holmes’ recent struggles.

“Michael Fulmer, Matt Moore and many others also are on the Yankees relief wish list, and they will get someone,” Heyman wrote.

July 31: Yanks eyeing Montas, Mahle, Robertson, among others

A’s right-hander Frankie Montas is the Yankees’ focus in the starting pitcher trade market right now. That is crystal clear by now, and that’s what MLB Network insider Jon Neyman wrote in the New York Post on Sunday. Heyman adds that while they would like to hang on to No. 1 prospect Anthony Volpe, the Yankees are “seemingly willing” to deal No. 2 prospect Oswald Peraza, another shortstop, to an Oakland club that is looking to land high-end prospects in return for Montas.

The Dodgers and Cardinals are also pushing hard for Montas. However, the Yankees may have an edge in the Montas sweepstakes as both of those other teams are also pursuing Juan Soto and may not have the prospects to land both players. Heyman writes that there is “no traction” in talks between the Yanks and Nationals for Soto as the Nats don’t view Volpe as a star.

New York loses out on Montas, it has its sights on . Reds right-hander Tyler Mahle and Pirates lefty Jos Quintana are on the Yankees’ radar, per Heyman.

July 31: Montas trade market focused on three teams

With Luis Castillo off the board, the Yankees have turned their focus to Frankie Montas, but they aren’t alone in their pursuit. According to MLB.com’s Jon Paul Morosi, the Blue Jays and Cardinals are also in the mix for the A’s right-hander.

Montas is perhaps the best remaining starter on the market after the Reds traded Castillo to the Mariners for four players, including three of Seattles top five prospects.

The price tag for Montas, who is 29 years old and controllable through 2023 just like Castillo, could be similarly lofty, though possibly a bit lower after Montas missed time with a shoulder injury earlier in July.

MLB Network insider Joel Sherman heard the Yankees told the Reds from the outset of trade talks that they were not willing to part with top prospect Anthony Volpe in any deal for Castillo. It remains to be seen if the Yanks can swing a deal for Montas with Volpe off limits.

New York’s rotation was one of the best in baseball for much of the first half, but it has started to show cracks lately. Luis Severino is on the injured list with a right lat strain, and Jameson Taillon had a 6.98 ERA over his previous six starts before throwing six shutout innings against the light-hitting Royals on Thursday. Jordan Montgomery, meanwhile, has pitched to a 4.97 ERA over his past seven starts.

July 31: Could this club be a fit for Gallo?

A year after losing out on Joey Gallo to the Yankees, could the Brewers land the outfielder before Tuesday’s Deadline? According to MLB Network insider Jon Heyman, Milwaukee and New York have “talked a bit” about Gallo — who the Yankees are expected to deal after Wednesday’s trade for Andrew Benintendi.

Gallo has struggled mightily since being acquired from the Rangers, slashing .159/.291/.368 with a 38.7% strikeout rate and a wRC+ of 88 (the league average is 100) over 501 plate appearances with the Yankees. At the same time, the 28-year-old still ranks in the 90th percentile or better among Major League hitters in walk rate, barrel rate and hard-hit rate this season. That, combined with his three 38-homer campaigns and Gold Glove-caliber defense, could be enough to convince a team such as the Brewers to take a chance on the soon-to-be free agent, hoping a change of scenery will serve him well.

Milwaukee’s offense has been inconsistent for much of the year, but it has been among the best in baseball since the All-Star break, ranking first in the Majors in on-base percentage (.380), slugging percentage (.530), OPS (.910) and averaging 6.9 runs per game. Christian Yelich,Andrew McCutchen,Hunter Renfroe andTyrone Taylor have been the team’s primary outfielders for much of the year, with Yelich being the only left-handed bat among the quartet.

July 29: Yankees targeting Montas with Castillo off the board (report)

With Luis Castillo, the top starter on this year’s trade market, off the board, the Yankees have their sights set on a different 29-year-old right-handed pitcher: Frankie Montas. After the Mariners sent four prospects for Castillo Friday evening, MLB Network insider Jon Heyman reported that the A’s pitcher was the Bronx Bombers’ “top starter target.”

Heyman also noted that the Yankees still have their eye on Pittsburghs Jos Quintana if they can’t pull of a deal for Montas. Earlier on Friday, Heyman wrote in a column for the New York Post that the Angels Noah Syndergaard was also on their pitcher list.

July 27: Yanks trade for Benintendi

The Yankees made the first big move of the 2022 Trade Deadline on Wednesday, trading for Royals outfielder Andrew Benintendi. Three Minor Leaguers — RHP Chandler Champlain, LHP T.J. Sikkema and RHP Beck Way — will be going to Kansas City in the trade.

Benintendi is enjoying the best season of his career for a Royals team that is underperforming and out of contention. The lefty is slashing .321/.389/.399 with a 124 OPS+ in 92 games. The Yankees were reported to be in the market for another outfield bat, especially after Giancarlo Stanton went on the injured list this week with Achilles tendinitis. More >
