NEW YORK (WFAN) — He will keep all of his options open, literally.
That was the message Wednesday from general manager Brian Cashman as the first-place Yankees consider ways to improve themselves prior to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline.
In a wide-ranging interview with WFAN’s Evan Roberts, Cashman reiterated reports from earlier this week that he won’t rule anything out, and that includes everything from doing nothing to perhaps trading away key pieces of the team’s future.
But it will all depend on how things shake out as the deadline draws near.
“We’ve always felt if we were healthy we’d be a contender for the division and much more,” Cashman said of his 51-41 club. “Right now we’re healthy, so we’re able to hit our capabilities. I’m not surprised because we have good players. I am happy with this club.”
