Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/30/18

Patrick Corbin is in town, J.T. Realmuto is supposedly on the Yanks’ radar; remembering the biggest trades in Yankee history.

Colorado Rockies v Arizona Diamondbacks Photo by Ralph Freso/Getty Images | Pete Caldera: As reported yesterday, coveted starting pitcher Patrick Corbin is in town for his scheduled visit to the Bronx. The Yankees appear to be pulling out all the stops, including displaying a photo of Corbin in pinstripes on the video board in center field at Yankee Stadium. As Caldera notes, the Yankees still have former Yankees J.A. Happ and Nathan Eovaldi on their radar, but Corbin has seemed like a prime target since before the 2018 season ended.

Jon Heyman | Fancred Sports: In some surprising news from Heyman, the Yankees are reportedly one of several teams who have checked in on Marlins’ catcher J.T. Realmuto, According to Heyman, the Yankees have been resistant to offer top pieces in a package with Gary Sanchez, who the Yankees still hold in high regard. Sanchez, despite a down year, has shown his ability to be the best offensive catcher in the game, so trading him for another top-notch catcher while sacrificing prospects in the process seems odd, but that could explain the Yanks’ resistance to such a deal.

Bryan Hoch | In the spirit of trade season, Hoch takes a look at the 10 biggest trades in Yankee history, with a list that fittingly starts with the acquisition of Babe Ruth. Other obvious entries included Alex Rodriguez and Giancarlo Stanton, while others included Roger Maris and Roger Clemens. It’s a nice trip down memory lane.
