FancredSports | Jon Heyman: It’s trade season, which mean rumors rumors rumors. A lot of rumors are going to be about Manny Machado and where he’s headed. Looks like the Yankees are potential players for his services. They’re also interested in Zach Britton as well. It’s probably unlikely that the Orioles would trade within their division, because yeah. It’s also unlikely that Machado would want to move back to 3rd base, being that he likes playing shortstop. It’s also unlikely that the Yankees would remove either Didi Gregorius or Miguel Andujar from their positions. What I’m trying to say is take this with a grain of salt.

Fangraphs | Jeff Sullivan: When it was announced that the Yankees were interested in Machado, the majority of Twitter responded with the appropriate “can he pitch?” To be clear, he cannot. Nathan Eovaldi can pitch though. You should know this, as he use to be a Yankee. Since recovering from Tommy John, Nasty Nate has been pitching well for the Tampa Bay Rays. Jeff Sullivan believes that Eovaldi might very well be the best pitcher on the market. The question is, do the Yankees want to take that plunge again?

Newsday | Erik Boland: Dellin Betances has been pitching pretty gosh darn well for the past month or three. A lot of people think that he should have been considered for the All-Star Game. Dellin believes that Chad Green is the true All-Star snub. It has been relatively easy being Green this season, showing that last season was not really a fluke. It’s still possible that one of them could make it, as injuries do happen. I’m just glad that both of them are pitching very well this season.

As for David Robertson...

...uh huh

Cut4 | MEARNS!!!: Yesterday was a historic day in pinstriped lore. On July 9th, 2011, former Yankee legend and current Marlins’ owner Derek Jeter hit his 3,000th hit as a Yankee. You may or may not remember that said hit was dingerlicious. Former PSA scribe Andrew Mearns is here to remind you of that day, and how there was more to remember than just the 3,000th hit. Give it a read.
