Already acquiring Brandon McCarthy may not quiet the New York Yankees rumors a few weeks prior to the MLB Trade Deadline. Who else could the Yankees look to acquire by month's end?
Although the Yankees are not actively pursuing Chase Headley right now, New York might want to add him before the Toronto Blue Jays do. New York needs some addition hitting, and Headley could help the Yankees significantly.
New York has pursued Cliff Lee for years, and now could be the time for the Yankees to grab him. Although Lee has a no-trade clause, he still has a chance to be with a contender in the Yankees if he finally chooses to do so.
The Yankees could target another Padres' player to bring Ian Kennedy back to New York in a potential deal. With experience in the Bronx already, trading for Kennedy makes the most sense.
The Yankees' DFA'd Alfonso Soriano over the weekend and could now look to trade him. The longtime Yankee outfielder/second baseman was acquired by the team last year from the Cubs, but he has not done well this year. New York could look to get something for Soriano before July 31.
Although the Yankees were willing to get rid of A.J. Burnett two years ago, he could find himself in pinstripes again. If the Phillies become sellers at the deadline, Burnett will be traded and the Yankees could be the best landing spot for him.
