The New York Yankees have been connected with the slugger of the Texas Rangers, Joey Gallo, for several weeks, and last Tuesday could have shed light on possible discussions between Texans and the Bronx.
MLB Network insider Joel Sherman reports that one of the Rangers’ top scouts attended Tuesday night’s game for the High-A Hudson Valley affiliate of the Yankees:
Shortstop Anthony Volpe (11th Yankees prospect) and second baseman Ezequiel Duran (No. 15 for the Yankees) combined for six hits in the Hudson Valley lineup.
Scouts are busy this time of year evaluating all sorts of potential prospect trades, so this doesn’t necessarily mean the Yankees and Rangers are deep in talks about Gallo.
