The Hot Stove keeps getting hotter….

According to SI’s Jon Heyman, the Yankees are entering the mix for Roy Halladay. Toronto Blue Jays GM, Alex Anthopoulos, has stated that he is willing to trade within the division.

Freddy Guzman and Josh Towers were removed from the Yankees 40-man roster. Brian Cashman has said that both players have elected free agency.
