Via Buster Olney, the Yankees continue to look for pitching (particularly left-handed) before tonight’s midnight trade deadline. As I explained earlier today, a player has to be in the organization by 11:59pm ET tonight to be eligible for the postseason roster, and there are no loopholes to get around that one. The Rangers acquired Mike Gonzalez from the Orioles earlier today, and that’s about as good as the trade help gets this time of year. I don’t expect the Yankees to do anything, and in fact Olney says they aren’t particularly optimistic about getting a deal done. Still got another six hours to go though.
