Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Curtis Granderson is
According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies have shown interest in the 37-year-old.Granderson entered Monday with a .233/.334/.419 slash line to go with 10 home runs in 86 games.With the veteran heading into free agency in the offseason and the Blue Jays currently 48-56 on the year鈥?3.5 games out of a playoff spot鈥攁 trade at this point is a no-brainer.Additionally, a deal like this makes a lot of sense for both teams currently linked to Granderson.The Yankees have an elite outfield when healthy, but star right fielder Aaron Judge is out at least three weeks due to awrist injury. Clint Frazier is also currently on the disabled list with a concussion.Adding Granderson could provide New York with a short-term fill-in who can also bring valuable depth for the remainder of the season. He can play all three outfield spots and has played postseason games with four different teams, including the Yankees from 2010-12.Meanwhile Lucas Giolito Jersey , the Phillies could use more depth in their lineup as well as a veteran presence to an otherwise young locker room. With Adam Jones unlikely to approve a trade, perDan Connollyof The Athletic, Granderson represents a quality alternative at the 11th hour. The Boston Red Sox have reportedly postponed their planned visit to the White House due to the federal government shutdown.According to Peter Abraham of theBoston Globe, the Red Sox were originally scheduled to visit the White House to celebrate their 2018 World Series win on Feb. 15 prior to the start of spring training http://www.whitesoxfanproshop.com/authentic-paul-konerko-jersey , but they will reportedly instead do so in May.The visit is expected to take place on May 6, 7 or 8 since that is when the Red Sox will be in Baltimore for a series with the Orioles.Per Abraham, Red Soxteam president Sam Kennedysaid last week that the organization was "uncomfortable" with the thought of visiting the White House while government employees were working without pay.While many players have publicly said that they will visit the White House to celebrate the World Series victory, others have suggested otherwise.Abraham noted that third baseman Rafael Devers has said that he will not attend Reynaldo Lopez Jersey , and starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez said that he is unlikely to partake in the festivities.It is also unclear if Red Sox manager Alex Cora will accompany the team to the White House since he waspublicly criticalof how President Donald Trump spoke about Hurricane Maria, which ravaged Cora's native Puerto Rico in 2017.Boston enjoyed one of the best seasons in Major League Baseball history in 2018, as it went 108-54 en route to winning the American League East and then beat the Los Angeles Dodgers in five games in the World Series.In 2019, the Red Sox will look to repeat with a team that remains largely unchanged from last season's dominant squad.
