Yankees, Padres said to be working toward a Craig Kimbrel deal

Craig Kimbrel
Both ESPN’s Jayson Stark and Buster Olney are hearing this one:

Amazing all the people who still think Craig Kimbrel winds up going to the #Yankees. #Astros also interested but wouldn’t want all the $

As @jaysonst and I keep hearing: Yankees and Padres keep hammering away at a possible Craig Kimbrel deal.

Brian Cashman said earlier this week that a rotation or a bullpen piece is most likely. And even though the Yankees bullpen is already a strength, you improve where you can improve. And adding Kimbrel, one of baseball’s best closers, would be a huge improvement.
