New York Yankees finalizing deal to acquire outfielder Andrew Benintendi from the Kansas City Royals, sources say

The New York Yankees are finalizing a deal to acquire outfielder Andrew Benintendi from Kansas City Royals, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

The Yankees are sending three minor league pitching prospects to the Royals in exchange for the 28-year-old Benintendi: Right-hander Beck Way, right-hander Chandler Champlain and left-hander T.J. Sikkema.

Benintendi was named to his first career MLB All-Star Game this season. Through Wednesday, he’s batting a career-best .320 with three home runs and 39 RBI in 93 games this season.

Trade chatter starts with these 7 players

Xander Bogaerts, SS, Red Sox
Under club control through 2022
(signed through 2025, opt out clause after 2022)

J.D. Martinez, OF/DH, Red Sox
Under club control through 2022

Bogaerts has an opt-out clause in his contract that he is expected to exercise, which would make him a free agent at the end of this season. He’s slashing .323/.393/.473 through his first 50 games, though that hasn’t helped the Red Sox, who entered Friday at 24-27, 12 games behind the AL East-leading Yankees. Bogaerts plays an excellent shortstop and will be highly sought after by a number of teams if the Red Sox decide to become sellers.

Martinez entered Friday with an AL-best .360 batting average and a .976 OPS, and while he clubbed only five home runs during his first 42 games, he remains one of the most consistently reliable hitters in the game. Now that the NL is utilizing the DH, the group of potential suitors is twice as big as it was before. Martinez is earning just north of $19 million this season, the last of his five-year, $110 million deal with Boston.
