Yankees have received calls about trading Brett Gardner

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees are now getting calls about Brett Gardner, a completely unexpected turn of events after they signed Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran, while still showing interest in Shin-Soo Choo.

Now that Robinson Cano has left the Yankees, they will need to find some way they can fill the void at second base, and trading Gardner could help with that. Obviously, the Yankees could sign Omar Infante of Mark Ellis as free agents and trade Gardner for a pitcher as well. There's lots of potential here, even if it's only for one year of Gardner.

Right now the Yankees say they still want their last remaining Opening Day starter, but things can change quickly if they make another signing or see a potential deal improving their team. New York has previously shown interest in Brandon Phillips in order to find someone who can fill in at second base for a few years. Oh, and don't worry, the Yankees reportedly have no interest in Dan Uggla, who is terrible.

Who would you trade Brett Gardner for? Or would you keep him?
