The trade deadline is approaching! It’s time to start seriously thinking about what the Yankees can do to improve this team as they seem poised to play baseball in October. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:

What trade should the Yankees make next?

The obvious choice here is a trade for a starting pitcher, since the Yankees have been hurting in the rotation department all season. CC Sabathia has been unable to provide any length, and both Sabathia and James Paxton are pitching around knee problems. Domingo German was just placed on the injured list with a hip injury, and Luis Severino, Jonathan Loaisiga, and Jordan Montgomery are already there. Monty is anticipated to return in August, but there’s no clear timeline for Sevy yet. The Bombers were in on Dallas Keuchel but ultimately passed, but is that because they have their sights set on a higher-quality arm?

Of course, the team could use help all around the horn. They should be getting their big bats (Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge) back at some point, but it’s hard to count on anything with all the injuries that have cropped up. Maybe you’d rather see them trade for a bat. There’s also the possibility of adding a big-name reliever if they can’t pry loose a top starting pitcher, like they did last year with Zack Britton.

What move would you like to see the Yankees make ASAP? Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer with us. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.

How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.

Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (June 14th) for your post to be considered.
