The Yankees are off to a hot start in 2013, posting an 18-12 record over the season's first 30 games. That they stand in second place in the AL East is made even more impressive when you consider the fact that Derek Jeter, Mark Teixeira, Curtis Granderson, Alex Rodriguez and Kevin Youkilis have missed most or all of the month with injuries.
The offense has been patched together by a series of smart moves by Brian Cashman to acquire veteran players to fill specific roles on the team. Travis Hafner has been great playing only designated hitter, Lyle Overbay has had some big hits as a first baseman and Vernon Wells, Brennan Boesch and Ben Francisco have all had time in the outfield.
At some point, though, there's a good chance these veterans' performances will regress. With major questions about when Jeter, Teixeira and Granderson will come back, as well as how well they will perform when they do, here are four trades Brian Cashman should consider pursuing.
