2017 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEADLINE REPORT: YANKS/A'S SHOULD GET DONE

By Michael Wong

The New York Yankees and Oakland A's are technically at a bit of an impasse as the July 31 trade deadline arrives but all involved think a deal will get done.  The apparent sticking point is the hesitancy of the Yanks to part with Estevan Florial but both will likely budge as the deadline approaches.  Meanwhile, the Yankees are very happy with Chase Headley and his near .370 stick over the last three weeks and so they really are not pushing on Yonder Alonso.  Alonso is slumping badly at the dish as well which doesn't make him very viable.  Look for Alonso to be a simply throw-in if he is involved at all.

-The Boston Red Sox are the favorites for New York Mets reliever Addison Reed and there is some traction there.  Unfortunately for the Mets, nothing still doing on Jay Bruce and only the Milwaukee Brewers are mildly interested in Curtis Granderson.

-The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros have been in on almost every available pitcher but both clubs have failed to pick up the big fish.  Yu Darvish is the target of the Dodgers along with closer Zach Britton but the Astros are also secondary figures.
