MLB trade rumors: Yankees interested in Sonny Gray, Yu Darvish

New York has to fill the hole in their rotation, fast. Now that Michael Pineda has officially gone down for the season with Tommy John surgery, the Yankees are going to need some new power house arms in their rotation. It comes as no surprise that Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports is reporting that New York is interested in adding Rangers’ star Yu Darvish and Athletics’ hurler Sonny Gray. Both the Rangers and Athletics would be looking for top prospects in exchange for their coveted starters, but so far it looks like the Yankees are keeping their big names like Gleyber Torres and Justus...

MLB trade rumors: Nationals not pursuing Sonny Gray, Yu Darvish

Washington is content with the starting group it has, per reports. The Nationals are not pursuing high-end starters like Yu Darvish or Sonny Gray, according to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal. Previous reports linked Washington to both righties in the wake of Stephen Strasburg’s injury, but Rosenthal reports that the club is not pursuing pitchers at that level. Strasburg is slated to miss only one start, with prospect Erick Fedde taking over in his place. The Nats, who have a stable of prospects led by outfielder Victor Robles, likely had the pieces to get a deal done for Gray or Darvish, but...

MLB trade rumors: Rangers leaning toward keeping Yu Darvish

MLB trade rumors: Rangers leaning toward keeping Yu Darvish

The righty has drawn interest from many contenders this week. The Rangers are “strongly leaning” toward keeping starter Yu Darvish through Monday’s trade deadline, according to MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan. Sullivan reports that the club would only trade Darvish if they are overwhelmed with an offer or fall out of contention with another losing streak. Texas, which currently sits 3.5 games out of the second wild card spot in the American League, is one of about four teams on the buy/sell fence in the AL. The Rangers have been streaky since the All-Star break, winning two before embarking...

MLB trade rumors: Dodgers have 'strong interest' in Rangers' Yu Darvish

MLB trade rumors: Dodgers have 'strong interest' in Rangers' Yu Darvish

Are the Dodgers willing to overwhelm the Rangers with an offer for Yu Darvish? As Jon Paul Morosi of MLB.com reports, the Dodgers have “strong interest” in Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish. Morosi points out, however, that multiple teams are interested in Darvish—who is by no means guaranteed to be dealt before the deadline—and that the bidding for him remains in the early stages. While A’s right-hander Sonny Gray has received the most trade buzz among starters this summer due to his controllability, Darvish would be the most impactful starter on the market if the Rangers decided...

MLB trade rumors: Here's Yu Darvish's 10-team no-trade list

Yu Darvish can block trades to 10 teams, but he’s fair game for a host of contenders. As Ken Rosenthal of FOX and MLB Network reported on Thursday, Rangers starter Yu Darvish has the ability to block trades to 10 teams: the Orioles, Red Sox, Cubs, Indians, Rockies, White Sox, Tigers, Athletics, Pirates, and Blue Jays. Despite the fact that Darvish pitched in a mild climate in Hokkaido, Japan from 2005-11, it’s evident that he’s not the biggest fan of cold-weather cities. The only team listed above that plays in a city with a warmer climate is Oakland, and there’s a host of...
