Yankees Interested in David Phelps, AJ Ramos

The New York Yankees are said to be interested in adding to their bullpen during this year’s July 31st trading deadline and the team’s search for bullpen relief may lead them to the Miami Marlins and a familiar face. According to reports the New York Yankees are said to be interested in both David Phelps and AJ Ramos of the Miami Marlins.

According to that guy that blocked us over at the New York Post because we broke a story before him and then requested that he at least mention us or credit us in his article the Yankees have been in connection with Miami regarding Justin Bour, which we knew and have reported here on the blog, but the Yankees have also been poking around asking about both Phelps and Ramos as well. Both Phelps and Ramos are under team control through the 2018 season.

Phelps should be familiar with New York and the atmosphere here as the righty pitched in the Bronx for three seasons before being traded to the Miami Marlins in the Martin Prado deal back in December of 2014.

Heading into the break here are the stat lines for both Phelps and Ramos from Baseball Reference:

There’s no speculation or reports on what it would take to land either of these arms, Bour or Martin Prado who the Yankees have also been linked to and I don’t pretend to know much about the status of the Miami Marlins farm system. It seems like Miami is destined towards another rebuild though and fire sale this July so that opens the door to a plethora of prospects options, something the Yankees have plenty of finally. Stay tuned as this develops, we’ll have it here. 


  1. I don't know who blocked you at the Post, but I think the Red Sox are hot and heavy after the same guys. I'd sure hate to see David Phelps and Martin Prado end up in Beantown.

    1. We don't say his name but his name rhymes with Hoel Herman


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
