Yankees wary of trading top prospect for Garrett Crochet

Table of Contents

As the 2024 Major League Baseball trade deadline approaches, the New York Yankees find themselves at a crucial juncture. With the deadline set for July 30th, the Yankees must strategize to bolster their roster without compromising their future, all in a bid to return to the World Series before potentially losing star player Juan Soto to free agency.

Chicago White Sox’s player on Yankees’ radar

One name that has captured the Yankees’ interest is Chicago White Sox ace Garrett Crochet. According to Jon Heyman of the New York Post, the Yankees are keen on Crochet, but negotiations face a significant hurdle.

“The Yankees very much like Crochet,” Heyman reported. “However, much like in previous discussions about former White Sox star Dylan Cease, New York is hesitant to trade away power-speed outfielder Spencer Jones, which remains a sticking point.”

As per SL.com, a deal appears unlikely due to the Yankees’ reluctance to include Spencer Jones in any trade package. However, as the deadline draws nearer, circumstances could shift. The Yankees might reconsider their stance, or the White Sox might lower their demands.

Crochet, in his first full year as a starter, has been stellar, boasting a 3.08 ERA and leading the league with 146 strikeouts. His addition would significantly enhance the Yankees’ rotation both for the remainder of the season and beyond.

Acquiring a player of Crochet’s caliber is precisely the kind of move the Yankees should aim for as the trade deadline approaches.

    2). DYLAN CEASE

    THAT SEEMS LIKE A FAIR TRADE !!!..

    KILL 4 BIRDS…WITH 2 STONES !!!. BAM !!!.

    ENOUGH SAID
    GOD BLESS 🙏 AMERICA

    1. Do you ever check your “facts” before you write something, Robby G?

      Dylan Cease isn’t on the White Sox. He was TRADED to San Diego in MARCH.

  2. If they wouldn’t trade Jones + or a proven buy in Cease, what makes anyone think they’d be OK trading Jones + for Crochet, a guy who has only had this half a season as his resume? Hil hit a wall, will Crochet also eventually hit one too? Now, if Crochet even had a 32 GS season on his resume, it’s a different conversation.

    1. Great point, AlanFromQueens. Unfortunately, this is just the sort of panic move nitwit Cashman might make.

      At minimum, Cashman should be removed from making any trades this year & in the future. (Firing him would be preferable.)

      Cashman has been fleeced on Every Trade he’s made the last half dozen years. He even gotten taken on the Soto deal by foolishly including Drew Thorpe.

      San Diego was Absolutely DESPERATE for CASH. They applied for a $100 Million bank loan & were rejected & were only able to qualify for half that amount. MLB was furious at SD for being in that much financial danger. (Word was they couldn’t meet their expenses.)

      So, when SD insisted on Thorpe being included, Cashman could have offered $5 MM cash for Each of two SD prospects in the 25-30 category; that would give SD $10 MM in much needed cash. There are other possible permutations, but the point is that Cashman doesn’t have the negotiating skills to pull off a smart deal.

      Now, as this trade deadline approaches, Cashman will be DESPERATE to save himself from the same kind of ridicule he faced after last year’s embarrassing 82-80 team.

      Nearing retirement or possibly being fired, a Desperate Cashman won’t give a damn about gutting the Yankees’ system of premium prospects because he won’t be around when & if those prospects (like Spenser Jones) possibly become stars. That’s why Cashman should be removed from any involvement in trades.
