We heard about the Yankees’ willingness to listen to offers for Curtis Granderson the other day, but Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York says that they’re willing to listen to offers for Phil Hughes and Ivan Nova as well.
I can see dealing Nova, but Hughes is, at present anyway, the team’s third or fourth starter. And in a rotation that is depending on Andy Pettitte, depth is going to matter too, so it seems strange that they’d be willing to peddle both of them. And as we mentioned the other day, someone has to play outfield for the Yankees in 2013, so trading Granderson doesn’t make a ton of sense. Unless, that is, the Bombers are willing to punt this season for a rare New York rebuild.
I’m going to assume it’s mere chatter, as all teams listen to almost all offers that come their way.
