The White Sox inquired on Wednesday about Yankees catching prospect Gary Sanchez. The talks never got serious when, a source in the know said, the Yankees’ asking price was “far too high.’’

 

The White Sox are looking for a catcher after placing Alex Avila on the 15-day disabled list with a hamstring injury.

What would be considered "too high?" If they want a top pitching prospect or two, it could be worth it to bring in another top position player into the org.

How about Brian McCann instead?

 

Realistically, I don't see the Yanks selling unless they have a rough couple weeks.

With that contract, they would probably just give us McCann. That is an ugly contract for a guy who was just publicly labeled as an $85 million platoon player.

At least its the strong side of the platoon. $17M in 17 and 18, and $15M in 2019. Still has an OPS of .771 this year; still won the SS last year despite the 3rd lowest OPS of his career. Could transition him to 1B/DH in a couple years. For being a catcher, I don't think that contract is THAT crazy. But if the Sox plan on moving Collins quickly, it probably doesn't make sense.
