LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Brian Cashman entered the Winter Meetings searching for rotation help and exited without it.
Yet just because baseball’s meat market has closed doesn’t mean the Yankees general manager won’t land a starting pitcher or two.
According to a person with knowledge of the situation, the Yankees and Pirates are discussing a deal that would bring right-hander Gerrit Cole from Pittsburgh and possibly would include outfielder Clint Frazier leaving The Bronx.
I’m not sure I’d trade Frazier for Cole. I’d trade him as part of a package for Michael Fulmer, who has out-pitched Cole the last two years in a better league and has an additional two seasons of team control. Would something like Frazier, Chance Adams, Thairo Estrada and a decent relief prospect get it done?
