Gray and Happ drawing interest from around the league; a list of intriguing Rule-5 prospects.

New York Yankees v Minnesota Twins Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images | Mike Rosenstein: Brian Cashman has not been shy about making clear his intentions to trade Sonny Gray. Luckily for him (and us), a market appears to be developing for the troubled right-hander. Though a reunion with the A’s has been long rumored to be a possibility, teams like the Braves, Padres, Rangers and Twins have also reportedly expressed interest in Gray. Here’s hoping Cash can make something work here.

SNY | Danny Abriano: Speaking of pitchers with a developing market, J.A. Happ is reportedly being considered by the Angels, Astros, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Phillies. This should come as no surprise, as Happ has proved himself to be quite the reliable mid-rotation starter in recent years, and there’s always a market for players like that. However, I tend to agree with Caitlin that the Yankees should be aiming higher this offseason. Adding Happ certainly wouldn’t hurt, but the main goal should be someone like Patrick Corbin. | Jim Callis, Jonathan Mayo, Mike Rosenbaum: The Rule-5 draft is coming up, and these three authors have teamed up to provide us with a list of 30 interesting draft-eligible prospects, one for each MLB team. The Yankees’ representative is third baseman Dermis Garcia, who possesses massive raw power but not much else. On the other hand, guys like first baseman Josh Ockimey or left-handed pitcher Breiling Eusebio could be intriguing for the Yanks.
