The New York Yankees and Cincinnati Reds are finalizing a trade for starting pitcher Sonny Gray, MLB.com insider Jon Heyman reported.
The Yankees would get 2nd base prospect Shed Long, a draft pick and possibly a third “lesser piece,” Heyman reported. Heyman reports physicals and 40-man roster considerations are part of the details being hashed out between the teams for Gray, who spent parts of the past two seasons with the Yankees.
Gray went 15-16 with the Yanks with a 4.51 ERA. The right-hander is 59-52 overall with a 3.66 ERA in his six-year career, most of those spent with the Oakland A’s.
Long is considered the No. 6 prospect in the Reds system.
