White Sox Expected To Trade Top Veteran; Yankees Name As Perfect Landing Spot

White Sox Anticipated To Trade Veteran; Yankees May Be Ideal Landing Spot Is New York willing to entertain a trade for the veteran pitcher from the White Sox?
The New York Yankees will probably try to add around the trade deadline if they keep up their good play.

Given their current circumstances, New York has a fantastic chance to go far in the playoffs this year. Superstar slugger Juan Soto’s arrival has been spectacular, and New York is unquestionably seen as a contender for the World Series.

Even though the Yankees are currently stacked with talent, it would make sense to acquire more depth in the run-up to the trade deadline. Although it has performed admirably this season, New York’s starting rotation still needs additional support.

Chris Flexen, the starter for the Chicago White Sox, is a man who could make some sense for the Yankees to add to their rotation. It would be surprising if they didn’t attempt to do so around the trade deadline. Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports reports that a deal is apparently anticipated for the 29-year-old.

“The White Sox, off to their worst start in franchise history, are still hoping to trade (Tommy Pham) to the highest bidder before the trade deadline,” Nightengale added. “The White Sox are also expected to trade starters Erick Fedde, Chris Flexen, Mike Clevinger, reliever Michael Kopech, and (designated hitter) Eloy Jimenez.”

Despite not having the kind of start he had hoped for—he has a 4.85 ERA in seven games this season—Flexen is still a useful player. With the Seattle Mariners, the veteran pitcher posted a 3.61 ERA in 31 starts in 2021 and a 3.73 ERA in 33 outings in 2022. He could contribute to the Yankees’ rotation at a cheap cost if he could pitch at that caliber.
