New York Yankees Round-Up July 19th, 2011: Carlos Beltran Rumor, Cashman Done, Soriano Rehab, Prospect Look-In

Brian-Cashman -The New York Mets announced yesterday that they could pull of another deal similar to that of Francisco Rodriguez, where they sent him on his way and ate his salary, but with Carlos Beltran. Carlos Beltran has the right to block a deal since he is a ten and five player. The New York Yankees have always been on his list of teams he would like to play for, but the interest has not been mutual. That is until now...for a bit. According to Bob Klapisch of Fox Sports, the Yankees entertained the idea of acquiring Beltran, but then concluded, "It's not a fit."

-MLB Trade Rumors nicely outlines what the New York Yankees are targeting for July 31st: "Starting pitcher, lefty and righty reliever, bench player capable of playing third base."

-Ken Rosenthal of ESPN takes a look at the general managers that have their jobs on the line with the Trade Deadline. He notes that Brian Cashman could walk after the season is over with the observation that he has become more vocal as if he needed to make a move to keep his job. One thing is for sure, he will not make any "stupid" moves that include the core of the team's farm system. A few days ago, he spoke saying that the Yankees will most likely be headed back to playing baseball in October and there was no need for any trade as an act of desperation. 

-Rafael Soriano will come out of the bullpen for the High A Tampa Yankees today to test the elbow that he injured in Mid-May. There has still been no word from Girardi about the role when Soriano returns, but he will come under fire if the binder's depth chart has him replacing David Robertson in the eighth inning. David Robertson took the win in last night's game against the Tampa Bay Rays. After his one inning of work with two strike-outs, his ERA is now at 1.21.
