MLB Trade : Yankees rejected offer for Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips

Yankees rejected offer for Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips

The New York Yankees have a surplus of outfielders. Brett Gardner is the outfielder with the most trade value but the Yankees are not in a rush to trade him even as general manager Brian Cashman acknowledges calls about the 30-year-old.

One team said to have interest in Gardner is the Cincinnati Reds who were willing to offer up second baseman Brandon Phillips in a potential deal according to CBS’ Jon Heyman.

In 2013, Phillips hit .261 with 18 home runs and a career-best 103 RBIs this past season, whereas Gardner managed .273 with just eight home runs, 52 RBIs and 24 steals.

For Gardner, though, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has stated that they will be listening to offers, especially considering that they have recently added outfielders Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury to the roster.

And officials have said that Yankees remain interested in the free-agent Omar Infante, although his contract demands currently remain too steep.
