The New York Yankees are gearing up for the July 31 trade deadline and have begun showing interest in starting pitchers.

They are hoping to have Luis Severino back for the second half of the season, but they recently missed out in Dallas Keuchel.

New York has spoken to the Toronto Blue Jays about Marcus Stroman, according to a source. They have also scouted Madison Bumgarner.

Bumgarner has the ability to block a trade to the Yankees.
