How much is too much?
That’s what New York Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman will have to decide when it comes to the August 2 trading deadline.
Cashman has compiled a list with the best baseball record (59-23). If there’s one area Cashman can upgrade, it’s the outdoor arena, where the Yankees get inconsistent productions (at best) from Aaron Hicks and Joey Gallo.

Among the top defensive players available before the trade deadline is Andrew Benintende of the Kansas City Royals. In fact, at the moment, it could be the most exciting player on the market. Per MLB.com:
According to ESPN’s Jeff Bassan, there is widespread interest in the 28-year-old left-hander. “Everyone wants it,” Bassan said on Wednesday’s edition of the podcast “Baseball Tonight.” “The lower salary bands want it. The higher salary bands want it. The big markets want it. The small market wants it. When Andrew Benintende goes, I think it’s best if Kansas City gets a huge amount of interest for him, because the benefit is, frankly, off the charts from everyone out there. “.

In addition to the Yankees, the following clubs have been closely associated with the Benintende: the Toronto Blue Jays, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago White Sox, Minnesota Twins, Cleveland Guardians, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers.
The seven-year MLB veteran has achieved the best level of his career .316 this season. This is his second year with the royal family. He came with the Boston Red Sox and was runner-up to Aaron Judge in the vote for the 2017 MLS Player of the Year award.
Benintendi, who helped the Red Sox win the 2018 World Championship, made $8.5 million this year and will be a free agent after the season.
