My guess is Tyler Austin is being showcased. If Bird proves healthy, Austin will be traded.

Long term, Torreyes and Walker are your infield reserves.

How does Bird prove he is healthy? Just for the moment maybe, until his next potential calamity. Would love to see a pitching match-up between the Met's Vargas and the Yank's Gray. Would expect a football score if not a basketball score.

Ive been really impressed with Austin. Can field and hit. Yanks overloaded with talent. Need to trade for a pitcher, but concerned about giving up future stars. I would not trade gems for mediocre pitching.

The problem is that there is only mediocre pitching out there.

I'd package Frazier (no room for him in the outfield), Austin (same problem at 1st, Walker could plat 1st too), and a pitching prospect for a top pitcher on a team that is selling.
Probably won't have any takers until a week or 2 away from the deadline.

I agree on Austin, but not Frazier. Gardner could be gone after this season, and personally, I'm not sold on Hicks. In any event, it's going to take a haul to get someone of value.

today's use of pitchers could be the boilerplate for the playoffs.
starter goes 5 then 4 relievers, one inning each.

Hamels is an option with a no-trade and will be available.

Bumgarner is the wildcard. There is an argument that it makes perfect sense for the Giants to rebuild and shop him, and he would be the absolute perfect fit for the Yanks. It would take a prospect-laden deal but the Yanks have plenty of that to deal.
