The New York Yankees are in need of pitching help and Jeff Samardzija is perhaps the most attractive option available on the trade market.
The 29-year-old can't become a free agent until after the 2015 season and has the lowest ERA in the National League.
Samardzija said he finds it easy to deal with the outside noise of trade possibilities.
"When you get asked about it the 15th or 16th time, it usually becomes just another question. So it doesn't really bother me too much," he explained. "… So I just look forward to going out there and getting the ball every fifth day. It just so happens it's against a great team and a great organization like the Yankees. I look forward to having a good day."
