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.

Theo says the Cubs are getting closer to a deal. They are trying to sync up a trade and FA. That sounds like Zobrist/Castro move, IMO

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:
Told Gardner is NOT part of conversations with #Cubs about Castro

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.
