FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE NEWS: YANKS TO "ACTIVELY" SHOP CHAPMAN, BELTRAN

A team source connected to the New York Yankees front office has told multiple outlets that the team will "actively" shop both outfielder Carlos Beltran and closer Aroldis Chapman leading up to the Aug. 1 trade deadline.  The trade chatter and effort among the Yankees hierarchy picked up a bunch of steam as the team dropped the first two games to the Boston Red Sox heading out of the All-Star break in listless fashion. 

Analysis:  Makes total sense as both men are pending free agents and would bring back a sizable haul.  The Chicago Cubs have been the most aggressive on Chapman, while the San Francisco Giants want a reunion with Beltran.  Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances meanwhile have been told they won't be going anywhere but that too could change.
