But as the August 2 trading deadline approaches, Cashman will be looking to adjust his roster for the extended run.
John Hyman of the New York Post reported that “The Yankees (and many others) covet Brian Reynolds of Pittsburgh, but they’ll look at Andrew Benintendi. Ian Hap would be a fit, but like Reynolds, he might stay put. He also loves the Marlins, Phillies, Padres and Mariners Reynolds.”

The 27-year-old Reynolds is one of the most recognizable names in the commercial market. The Pittsburgh Pirates hit 0.257 with 15 home points this season.
He was an All-Star last year, when he hit his career highs with 24 lucky catches and 90 RBIs, helping him finish 11th in the National League Player of the Year vote. According to Spotrac, Reynolds is under contract until 2023 and is under team control until 2025.
28-year-old Benintende burns down the mall, and for good reason. The Kansas City Royals scored a career best of .319 this year and won the Golden Glove in 2021. Benentende was the MLS Rookie of the Year runner-up in 2017 (to Yankees’ Aaron Judge) and helped the Boston Red Sox win the 2018 World Series. According to Spotrac, Benintende will be a free agent after the season.
The 27-year-old has a career best of .282 this season for the Chicago Cubs. He made 25 home runs last year. According to Spotrac, Hub is under team control until 2023.
