FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING TRADE DEADLINE NWS: CRAIG KIMBREL BECOMING A PERSON OF INTEREST OF THE YANKEES

The New York Yankees have had talks in the last 24 hours with the San Diego Padres regarding All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel.  With the Yankees not having much success finding a starting pitcher that they are willing to trade for in terms of what they have to give up, boosting their already dominant bullpen is becoming their new approach.  Kimbrel and his high K rate would settle in nicely with Dellin Betances and closer Andrew Miller to give the Yankees one of the best 7th-8th-and-9th innings bullpen arms in the game's history. 

Analysis:  Kimbrel has a big market for him so it looks like he will be on the way out of San Diego too along with Joaquin Benoit and maybe Justin Upton.  Kimbrel has been unhittable lately after a rough start to the season but his value will take a hit if he goes to setup with the Yanks.
