New York Post | Joel Sherman: Earlier this week, we saw rumors that the Mariners and Yankees might have discussed a trade that would see Robinson Cano return to the Bronx. Now, we have a further update that includes the possibility that the Mariners would include reliever Edwin Diaz to get a team to take on Cano’s contract. The Yankees were one of the teams to inquire about Diaz to begin with, so that’s something to keep an eye on.

CBS Sports | Katherine Acquavella: We’ve long suspected that the Yankees were in on Patrick Corbin, but according to reports, the Phillies are also very much in on him as well. They’re likely not the only teams interested in him, but they appear to be the favorites. | Mike Rosenstein: As for a Sonny Gray trade, it’s a matter of when, not if. The team theoretically could have included him in the James Paxton trade, but instead just gave up a package of prospects headlined by Justus Sheffield. It appears the reason is that his trade value is above that of just being a throw in. According to the story, there are a number of potential suitors for him, so we’re probably getting closer by the day to the end of his tenure in New York.

Architectural Digest | Joyce Chen: It was a bit of a light news day, so I’m including this story about Vernon Wells listing his mansion in Texas for sale. It’s quite nice. In semi-related news, anyone got $8.5 million lying around?
