MLB Rumors: Could Chicago Cubs Trade Jeff Samardzija To New York Yankees?

MLB Rumors: Could Chicago Cubs Trade Jeff Samardzija To New York Yankees?

Hyped by on May 2, 2014 Website: www.bostonsuperblog.com

The New York Yankees spent nearly a half billion dollars this past offseason on free agents such as Masahiro Tanaka, Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann. After learning that this would be the final MLB season for Derek Jeter, the Yankees wanted to make sure that they do everything possible to ensure that The Captain does not miss the playoffs in his final season, much like the great Mariano Rivera did in his final season in 2013. While things looked good for the first few weeks, the injury bug is starting to bite the Yankees’ starting pitching, which was seen as the team’s weak spot entering the season. Tanaka has been brilliant, and Hiroki Kuroda is still pitching fairly well. But, C.C. Sabathia is clearly a shell of his former self (literally, and figuratively) and Michael Pineda is trying to put the pine tar incident behind him while resting yet another injury. Adding injury to insult is the fact that Ivan Nova is done for the season. If the Yankees are to make a serious run, they will need to bolster their starting rotation. Look for them to start targeting teams going nowhere and looking to get younger while clearing space. With that being said, could the Chicago Cubs trade Jeff Samardzija to the Yankees prior to the 2014 MLB Trade Deadline?
