Jason O. Watson/US PresswireThe Yankees could be in the mix for Gio Gonzalez if they are willing to part with a top pitching prospect.
• The New York Yankees have been reluctant to move top pitching prospects Manny Banuelos and Dellin Betances for all the right reasons. However, if Oakland shops southpaw Gio Gonzalez, who has one of the best left-handed breaking balls in the AL, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman will adjust and include at least one of the two in the right package. Cashman is also pursuing Jair Jurrjens from the Braves, dangling shortstop Eduardo Nunez , but so far will not give up either Banuelos or Betances for Jurrjens.
