Why the potential Sonny Gray trade fair will surprise the Yankees

The Yankees are getting a lot of play about possibly signing free agent Patrick Corbin, retaining J.A. Happ and talking to Seattle about James Paxton. They have been linked to the Indians’ Corey Kluber and Carlos Carrasco. But Sonny Gray still has trade value despite a poor 2018 season and general manager Brian Cashman has

Cashman inadvertently put forward some clues to Yankees’ interest in Corbin

CARLSBAD, Calif. — On Monday, while addressing the media here at the general managers’ meetings, Brian Cashman said of 2018 rental J.A. Happ, “Have I talked to John Courtright, his agent?

Aaron Boone left no doubt on Saturday that Gary Sanchez will be behind the plate for the Yankees wild-card game, regardless of who is pitching. Asked if Sanchez — who has struggled defensively throughout his career — was definitely the starting catcher for the win-or-go home game, Boone said: “Yeah.” Boone also said he didn’t
