It appears that Joey Gallo wasn't the end.
According to multiple reports, the New York Yankees have a deal in place to acquire Chicago Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo.
The Yankees have a deal to acquire 1B Anthony Rizzo from the Cubs, per source. @JackCurryYES was on it first.— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) July 29, 2021
The deal ends an 10-year run for Rizzo on the north side of Chicago highlighted by a World Series victory in 2016.
Rizzo, 31, has 14 home runs and 40 RBI in 92 games this season for the Cubs. The Parkland, Fla., native is due about $6 million for the remainder of the season and is scheduled to become a free agent later this year.
He was an All-Star three seasons in a row from 2014 to 2016 and is a four-time Gold Glove Award winner.
The Yankees currently sit third in the American League East at 53-48 and now have a pair of elite left-handed bats being added to the lineup in Gallo and Rizzo.
