5 Bold Predictions for New York Yankees' Trade Deadline Moves

Will Phil Hughes be dealt at the deadline?

The New York Yankees have had 45 different players appear in a game so far this season. The franchise record is 51.

Marred by injuries, general manager Brian Cashman has gone to great lengths in an effort to field a winning team. While he’s done all he can, most of the team’s transactions have come from the waiver wire and promoting within the organization. Suffice it to say, there haven’t been many big names Yankee fans are familiar with. 

When the injured players on the roster are activated from the disabled list, they promptly get re-injured. It happened to Curtis Granderson, Mark Teixeira, and most recently, Derek Jeter. 

The market in this year’s non-waiver trade deadline is weak. Cashman called it “an offensive offense market,” per Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News.

Still, Cashman is actively fielding—and making—phone calls. He’s well-known for his ability to strike a deal for aging stars a little past their prime (e.g. Bobby Abreu, Kerry Wood, Lance Berkman, Ichiro).

For the Yankees to go on a hot streak in August—the hottest month of the year—a deal for a bat needs to take place.
