GARY SANCHEZ IS A WHITE SOX TARGET
Not sure if the Yankees will ever trade the kid, but there have been kicking tires and sniffing hydrants around Gary Sanchez lately. In fact, there have been trade rumors circling him for about a year now.
The most recent one came a few days ago from George King of the New York Post:
"The White Sox inquired on Wednesday about Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez. The talks never got serious when, a source in the know said, the Yankees’ asking price was 'far too high.’
The White Sox are looking for a catcher after placing Alex Avila on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury."
The Yankees have long touted Sanchez as the next big prospect. Many in baseball have actually, so I have no reason to doubt what King is saying here about the Yankees asking price being "far too high".
If they do want to flip him to the Sox, they want a lot in return... I like where their head is at. Chris Sale anyone? How about first baseman Jose Abreu? Nice right? Right there I'd love to trade Sanchez.
Look on the other hand, I also hope to hear they aren't interested in trading him. I kind of want to see what he'll do in pinstripes.
Anyway... it's a rumor and a nugget, and I just wanted to share. Enjoy.
