Rumor Dish: Garza, Marcum, Greinke, Dempster, Wandy, Hughes

In his latest piece at CBS Sports, Jon Heyman discussed the Yankees and their rotation situation. He said that it is looking more and more likely that the Yankees will pursue a starting pitcher at the trading deadline this year. Of the starting pitchers who will be available to one degree or another, Heyman says that the Yankees are most interested in and keen on Matt Garza of the Cubs.

Yankees people like the fact Garza is battle-tested in the American League East after acquiring too many pitchers from the National League who haven’t been able to make a seamless transition to the A.L.

The argument of the rocky transition from the National League to the American League is one that is rather well supported. One only has to look at the second stint with Javier Vazquez and the so far mixed performance of Hiroki Kuroda to understand the Yankees’ reported concern. According to Heyman, the Yankees are not very interested in some of the other pitchers who would potentially be on the trade market like Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum of the Brewers, along with Ryan Dempster of the Cubs. He also said that Wandy Rodriguez of the Astros is the probable back-up plan to Garza.

While he is not the only source of concern, Heyman reports that the Yankees are highly concerned about Phil Hughes and his inability to put hitters away when ahead in the count. Hughes has been overly reluctant to go to his curveball and change-up and that is clearly not a good sign.
