MLB Trade Speculation: Possible Waiver Targets for the New York Yankees

August is the month for waiver trades where teams try to make some last-minute additions to bolster their team for the playoffs. The New York Yankees are one of those teams, and they really need to make some additions.

They're still waiting on Andy Pettitte and Alex Rodriguez to return. Michael Pineda, Brett Gardner and Mariano Rivera are out for the season. CC Sabathia just joined them again by returning to the DL for 15 days.

The Yankees will likely look to internal solutions for their problems, but that won't mean they won't be linked to some of the names out there. They could use some pitching and some help at the catcher position as well as the infield.

It's very tough to gauge waiver rumors since most players that are waived get yanked when someone places a claim. It's even tougher this season since not many teams have waived any notable players, especially pitchers

Now's a good a time as any for the Yankees to make some upgrades before the playoff starts. While this is just speculation, it'd be nice to see the Yankees turn some of it into reality.
