MLB: NYPOST: Yankees ask Cubs about Zambrano, Cubs Refute’s Report

December 21, 2009

With his everyday lineup for 2010 set, Brian Cashman has turned attention to the rotation, and will almost certainly add a starter by New Year’s, according to a major league source. Cashman is believed to have inquired about Carlos Zambrano, but with the Cubsasking price high for the 28-year-old right-hander — who is coming off an injury-plagued 2009 — it’s more probable the Yankees will go the free-agent route.

Cubs source refutes report about talking to Yanks about Zambrano

A New York Post article regarding the Chicago Cubs talking to the New York Yankees about sending Carlos Zambrano to New York for a center fielder is premature.

First and foremost, Zambrano has a full no-trade clause in his contract that runs through 2012. Zambrano’s agent, Barry Praver, said he has not been contacted about a trade. And a Cubs source told ESPNChicago.com there is nothing to the speculation at this point.

“I’ve had zero discussions with the Cubs about a possible trade,” Praver said. “I’ve talked to them on numerous occasions, and the topic has never come up.”
