Red Sox Trade Target: Zach Britton

Another reliever to look at Over the last week-plus, we have been touching on a host of potential trade targets for the Red Sox ahead of the trade deadline. In fact, the only member of the staff who did not meet his/her deadline was...me! Not that this matters to you, but yes I am joining the party now. Better late than never. And yes, predictably I am writing about a reliever. Right now, the Orioles are perhaps the most obvious seller in baseball and they have Manny Machado, who is almost certainly the most intriguing and famous trade chip available this summer. Justifiably, all of their...

Yankees reportedly express interest in Zach Britton

If the hunt for starting pitching turns up empty, could Brian Cashman try to buttress the bullpen? Starting pitching stands out as the glaring need for the Yankees this summer. Should the price tags run too high, or the arms prove ineffective, one may suspect Brian Cashman to pivot to the bullpen market. It’s a path he’s taken many times over the last few years, and it could be an alternative leading up to the non-waiver trade deadline. According to Jon Heyman, the Yankees have shown interest in Orioles closer Zach Britton. Britton, 30, returned from a ruptured Achilles tendon on June...
