The New York Yankees are reportedly very high on Danks and are currently engaged in preliminary talks with the White Sox about the 29-year-old lefty. Danks is 8-6 this season with a 4.35 ERA. His sub-two K/BB ratio and 1.419 WHIP show how much he's struggled this year, but the Yankees seem adamant that the double-digit game winner from 2008-2010 is still lurking in there.
In Viciedo's case, while he is hitting just .236 with a .287 on-base percentage in 2014, the 25-year-old is continuing to show continued growth power-wise with twelve home runs in 360 at-bats.
