SNY | Andy Martino: The New York Mets are a little disheveled this season, and it feels like this might finally be the year they trade some of their stockpiled arms. Apparently the Mets have sent their top scout to see Deivi Garcia’s first Triple-A start on Monday night, and Garcia would be the centerpiece of any major deal. The Yankees would never ship him out for someone like Zack Wheeler, but for Noah Syndergaard....reply hazy, try again.

FanGraphs | Kiley McDaniel: Speaking of trades, FanGraphs has rolled out the latest installment in one of my favorite series: ranking the top 50 most valuable trade pieces in MLB. Part one, linked above, explores the methodology and guys who just missed the cut, while part two ranks #50-41. Gary Sanchez makes an appearance in this set, and more Yankees will certainly follow,

New York Daily News | Bradford William Davis: One of the most incredible things about the 2019 Yankees is how good they’ve been without Luis Severino, a Cy Young candidate at his best. The right-hander has been down all year with rotator cuff and lat problems, but could make his season debut in late August if all goes well. With concern around re-aggravation, the best move might be to give Severino a bullpen role, handing the Yankees yet another electric weapon in relief.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: The top story around the deadline this year is just how there are no real sure things available. There isn’t a real top-of-rotation ace on the market, since neither the Nationals or Diamondbacks are giving any indication they’re selling. The Yankees still need starting pitching, though, and shouldn’t let the drive for an “ace” lead to stagnation on the market.
