Yankees Potential Trade Target: Mychal Givens

The Yankees could use some help edifying their snake-bitten pen after injuries to relievers Tommy Kahnle (Tommy John surgery), Zach Britton (hamstring strain), and now Luis Avilán (left shoulder inflammation) as we approach the latter half of this 100-yard dash of a season. They desperately need a reasonably priced arm or two to provide the middle-to-late innings link between a depleted rotation and Aroldis Chapman.

After some predictable regression following their hot start, the Orioles have dropped seven of their last ten, and look more like the tire fire we’re used to seeing play at Camden Yards.
