Could the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees link up for a trade again?
The Yankees and Rangers just did business not too long ago, as the former acquired 2B Rougned Odor from the latter in exchange for a pair of prospects.
And they could match up on a Kyle Gibson trade as well.
New York’s rotation behind ace Gerrit Cole is bad (to put it lightly), and they’re at 5-10 and last in the AL East because of it.
Though the team’s ERA collectively sits at 3.64, 10th in baseball, most of that production is due to the bullpen and, well, Gerrit Cole.
That could make Kyle Gibson an attractive piece to a Yankees team that will need starter innings so as to not over-tax the bullpen come playoff time.
Perhaps a couple mid-tier prospects could entice the Rangers to deal Gibson to the Bronx Bombers.
