Prior to Saturday’s game against the Baltimore Orioles, Yankees manager Aaron Boone was asked if he’s privy to what the front office is doing as the trade deadline approaches.
The skipper said that Brian Cashman gave him a “little overview” of what is happening in the Yankees’ trade deadline war room.
“They’re kind of fielding all these calls,” he said. “Things build, things go away.”
Boone said there is no deal imminent.
SNY’s Andy Martino reported that Yankees scouts are watching the Mets this weekend as they are looking for right-handed left fielders. Both Tommy Pham and Mark Canha fit the bill.
This year’s trade deadline is set for 6 p.m. EST on Tuesday, Aug. 1.

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the St. Louis Cardinals have made it known that they will trade closer Jordan Hicks to interested teams after being unable to agree on a contract extension, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Among those interested teams are the Yankees, as well as the Texas Rangers who have reportedly aggressively pursued the relief pitcher who is a free agent at the end of the season.
Hicks is 1-6 with a 3.67 ERA (1.51 WHIP) and eight saves in 40 appearances this season.
