YANKEES ARE REPORTEDLY PUSHING FOR PROFAR

We hear about the "Yankees connected to Rangers prospect Juriskson Profar" all the time. But this time it seems more serious.

This is the latest on this rumor, courtesy of the New York Post and Joel Sherman:

"The Yankees are still trying to make a trade or two before the Monday deadline to freeze 40-man rosters for December’s Rule 5 draft, and one player who has surprisingly caught their attention is Texas’ Jurickson Profar.

The Yankees are deep in infield prospects, so there is no obvious place for Profar – once the top prospect in the game – to play.

But it seems the Yankees would be willing to take on a single player with upside and pedigree in exchange for multiple players who are crowding their deep 40-man roster."

And so now the question is, will they do something like this.  I mean, we have Didi Gregorius and we love him. We have a ton of great prospects already.  I feel like Cashman is doing this strictly to stock pile, and like Sherman suggests, "...take on a single player with upside and pedigree in exchange for multiple players who are crowding their deep 40-man roster."

Cashman is smarter than all of us.  I am assuming he has a plan.  Whatever it is, and yes, there is no easy fit... the idea of Profar in pinstripes is definitely intriguing.  We shall see...

Happy Friday.
