Tuesday open trade rumor thread

Of course, I thought Lilly wouldn’t be a bad fit, if the Yanks were indeed talking to the Cubbies

Sherman’s posting:

Vazquez had arguably his best season as a major leaguer last season, going 15-10 with a 2.87 ERA. He is due $11.5 million next season. He would slot into the No. 4 spot in the rotation behind CC Sabathia, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte and allow the Yankees to use either Phil Hughes or, more likely, Joba Chamberlain as the set-up man for Mariano Rivera.

I think Sherman’s right here. Getting HOT..

From Ken Rosenthal, via Twitter:

Yankees in serious talks for J. Vazquez, as first reported by NY Post’s Joel Sherman. Braves’ target is M. Cabrera, not Swisher.

Would like to keep Swisher. Bigtime. Quick follow-up by Jon Heyman, via Twitter:

Does this mean Damon could return?…

[image title="javier-vazquez-230x300" size="full" id="13388" align="center" ]MLBTR reports that the Yankees will acquire Javy Vazquez for Melky Cabrera, Michael Dunn, and Arodys Vizcaino. They will pay the entirety of Vazquez’s 11.5 million dollar salary.

I’m at work, so this will have to be pretty brief.

Melky leaving clears the way for some kind of left field situation involving...
