New York Post | Jon Heyman: The trade deadline has come and gone, but more information has surfaced in regards to the Yankees’ interest in Shohei Ohtani. The Bombers reportedly were among some of the teams that told the Angels to essentially choose whoever they want in exchange for the star player. It obviously never came to fruition for anyone. The Yankees also checked in on reliever Raisel Iglesias, but were unwilling to pay all of the $50M left on his contract, and the right-hander was ultimately moved to the Atlanta Braves.
