NYY vs. BAL – 7/30/11: Game 1
The Yankees inquired on Twins center fielder Denard Span, tweets Yahoo’s Tim Brown. Brown imagines that this inquiry could be part of something bigger, since the Yankees are currently set on outfielders.
- The Yankees are all over Jimenez, a source tells ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian.
- The Yankees are hearing that the Rockies may lower the price on Jimenez today, tweets Ken Rosenthal, but still not to a point that they consider realistic. Renck tweets that the Rockies’ price hasn’t changed during the process.
- The price on Jimenez has come down a tad, tweets Jon Heyman. He says the Rockies are no longer asking for Banuelos from the Yankees; Betances, Nova, and Montero would work. That’s similar to what Joel Sherman wrote earlier today. The two teams have not talked today, tweets Troy Renck. Renck believes the Yankees currently will not put both Montero and Betances in the deal – just one.
- The Dodgers are down to a final three of the Rangers, Yankees, and Red Sox on Kuroda, tweets Jon Heyman, though there’s still no word on whether he’d approve a trade.
- The Yankees have taken the lead over the Red Sox for Kuroda, tweets ESPN’s Jim Bowden, and it’s 40/60 they make a deal. However, Buster Olney tweets that the Yankees and Dodgers have not spoken about Kuroda recently.
Bartolo Colon (7-6, 3.29) vs. Chris Tillman (2-3, 4.69)
