What are the latest Yankee trade rumors?
Bartolo Colon continues to produce for the Yankees. On Saturday afternoon he went 5 innings giving up 5 hits, 2 runs, walking 2 and striking out 6. He moves to 8-6. Corey Wade pitched 3 good innings in relief giving up one run over the three innings. Nick Swisher launched his 13th home run of the season. More impressively, the Yankees were able to put up 8 runs using their alternative lineup which included Chris Dickerson, Francisco Cervelli, Eduardo Nunez, and Eric Chavez.
Going into their second game of the day, Yankee trade rumors had an initial spark but then fizzled out. They were reportedly back to be in the front of the pack to trade for Ubaldo Jimenez since sources said the price would come down slightly, but it didn’t come down anywhere close enough to satisfy the Yankees. In addition, the Yankees were also hot on Hirodi Kuroda, however Kuroda announced that he will not waive his no-trade clause and will remain in Los Angeles.
So as of right now, the trade front with the Yankees remains very quiet. We will certainly keep you posted right here on 1045theteam.com for all of the latest.
