Major League Baseball trade rumors: Yankees reportedly have found trade partner for Brian McCann

The Yankees gave up on Branden Pinder and his command issues

McCann has a full no-trade clause in his contract, so he would have to sign off on any move away from NY.

For the Yankees, Brian McCann's name and trade rumors have been synonymous for months now.

McCann has a full no-trade clause in his contract, so he would have to sign off on any move away from NY.

Yankees general manager and senior vice president Brian Cashman indicated Thursday that "A McCann trade does not appear imminent", according to Jon Morosi of MLB Network. However, he has yet to speak to McCann directly. "[McCann's agent, B.B. Abbott] said, 'Keep me posted; why don't you guys go through the process and if you have something you need to talk to us about, give us a call", Cashman explained. "I don't have any guidance. I do have a personal belief of what's more workable than others".

The main question would be what kind of players would Cashman receive in return for McCann. He lists shorter-term options like Carlos Beltran, Kendrys Morales and Mike Napoli as more likely candidates than Edwin Encarnacion or Mark Trumbo, who could both command four-year deals this winter (and perhaps five, in Encarnacion's case).

The Yankees, meanwhile, continue to transition into their next stage, ushering in younger talent like Gary Sanchez or Aaron Judge, making players like McCann expandable. However, the Astros could be hesitant to pay him the $34 million he is due.

McCann, 32, has been the subject of trade rumors this week, with Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reporting Wednesday the Houston Astros were "pursuing" a trade for the veteran designated hitter and catcher. Considering Gary Sanchez will be receiving the league minimum over the same time, the Yankees would love to rid themselves of that contract.
