Yankees and Mets will not chase Trevor Bauer, who may require a ‘club from another planet.’

According to insiders, neither the Mets nor the Yankees will pursue Trevor Bauer before Friday’s trade deadline or as a free agency.

When he was released two years ago, the Mets “ducked a bullet,” according to a Mets representative. The Yankees could never consider him; during their time at UCLA, ace Gerrit Cole was the first to despise Bauer.

Bauer, who has been reinstated after serving a 194-game ban, remains unemployed in Major League Baseball. The question will be whether or not owners are willing to take a chance on a player with such a high talent. The Dodgers partially designated him for assignment (rather than releasing him) in an effort to move him out of their division. They obviously desired to prevent the Padres from signing him. As initially reported by the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres will not either.

One baseball official stated that the club would have to be from another planet. However, given the scarcity of pitching, this may not be the case. The Dodgers have until Friday to trade him; otherwise, he will become a free agent. He is reported to have behaved well when playing for the Cincinnati Reds, leading to rumors about them (unconfirmed).

Due to Trevor Story’s elbow surgery, the team will sign one or two middle infielders to assist at shortstop. Elvis Andrus, Jose Iglesias (who began his career with the Boston Red Sox), and Josh Harrison are candidates.

The Giants are considering Gary Sanchez, whose defensive stats indicate a significant improvement.

Three teams are reportedly interested in Aroldis Chapman.

On October 2, 2022, Aroldis Chapman will throw for the Yankees against the Orioles.

Carlos Correa established a record that will not be surpassed for some time. This winter, he agreed to transactions totaling $865 million.
