A talented New York Yankees roster has been decimated by injuries early in 2014, and if general manager Brian Cashman is still committed to competing this year he'll have to propose some deadline deals.
There are holes everywhere on this roster—mostly due to injuries. The Yankees could use some help in the middle of the infield, while insurance at the hot corner and maybe even in the outfield would be nice too.
The real issue is the pitching staff. The starting rotation has fallen apart after appearing to be an apparent strength in spring training, while the bullpen has shown that life after Mariano Rivera is scary. This team needs upgrades in both the rotation and the bullpen if it wants to compete in the tough American League East.
Luckily, there are several players who should be available come the trade deadline. Here are the players Cashman should have his eye on.
