Below are some of the pitchers that are being batted around in trade rumors and one pitcher who is a free agent.

Looking at the stats, it’s clear that all of these pitchers are in the same general range of class. They’re even all around the same age.

Considering the reports that teams are asking the Yankees for Montero and/or the Killer Bees (Banuelos & Betances), why not ditch all the prospect talk and just pay money for Edwin Jackson?

Granted, we don’t know yet what Jackson is looking for and if the Yankees are really trying to cut payroll, but the stats don’t lie. Jackson compares well to all these trade targets and the Bombers could keep all of their prospects for future use.
