MLB Trade Rumors: 5 Teams Freddy Garcia May Attract Interest from at Deadline

Freddy Garcia is a member of the New York Yankees' starting rotation...for now.

With Michael Pineda on the disabled list and Andy Pettitte working on a comeback, it's only a matter of time before Garcia becomes expendable.

Pettitte's expected to make his debut sometime in May, while Pineda will likely see time in the minors before he cracks the big league rotation.

Garcia told ESPNNew York he would accept a bullpen assignment, but I'm not entirely sure that there will be a spot for him when the time comes.

If the Yankees were to attempt and trade away the 35-year-old Garcia, they would likely be able to obtain a bench bat or a mid-level prospect in return.

Teams are always looking for pitching at the deadline, and Garcia could be a cheaper alternative to some other highly-priced hurlers.

Here are just a few teams that could come calling at the deadline.
