Are the Yankees hurting Brian McCann’s future trade value?

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Maybe Carlos Beltran was lucky in more ways than one. Not only did he get traded from the Yankees to the Rangers, significantly increasing his chances of getting to the postseason, he also wasn’t around to see Aaron Judge take his job.

Heyman: Yanks wanted Foltynewicz, Inciarte for McCann

According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees’ “last known request” during Brian McCann trade talks with the Braves was hard-throwing righty Mike Foltynewicz and outfielder Ender Inciarte. Atlanta was apparently willing to eat half of McCann’s $17M annual salary, but they also wanted to give up lesser prospects.
