Report: Cubs, Yankees re-engage in Starlin Castro trade talks

Chicago Cubs infielder Starlin Castro could be on the move.

UPDATE: Joel Sherman is reporting the two teams have agreed on a deal pending a physical. 

According to a report by FOX’s Ken Rosenthal, the Cubs and New York Yankees have re-opened up trade talks involving Castro.  The two teams are currently talking as Major League Baseball is hosting its Winter Meetings in Nashville.

It was reported in November that the two teams were discussing a deal involving Castro and Yankees outfielder Brett Gardner. But nothing came of that. This deal wouldn’t involve Gardner however according to Joel Sherman:

The Cubs are likely looking for a starter back for Castro to booster their rotation that includes Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta and newly-signed Jon Lackey. Sherman also mentions the two teams are working on multiple scenarios and that the Cubs have expressed interest in Adam Warren.

Stay tuned for updates.
