The 2011 MLB Trade Deadline is just over 24 hours away, and some big moves have already happened. This week alone, the New York Mets traded Carlos Beltran to the San Francisco Giants, and last night, Hunter Pence was traded by the Houston Astros to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Yet, the biggest name on the trade market that still appears to be floating around is that of Colorado Rockies pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez. Earlier today, ESPN's Tim Kurkjian tweeted that the New York Yankees were "all over" the right-hander. This is certainly an interesting development as it was rumored earlier this week that the Rockies' asking price for Jimenez was too high for Yankee GM Brian Cashman.
Still, with the Boston Red Sox reportedly interested in Jimenez, don't be surprised if the Yanks end up making a deal for Jimenez as the deadline approaches. The Cleveland Indians and Toronto Blue Jays have also shown interest.
It's sure to be an exciting weekend, folks. Stay tuned for more updates on deals involving your favorite teams and players over the next two days!
