The MLB trade rumors [VIDEO] are a red-hot topic right now with the New York Yankees seeming to be at the eye of the storm on a daily basis. As the Yankees rumors [VIDEO] continue to grow, the Bombers have made two things clear - they want to add another starting pitcher, and they need a third baseman. With Todd Frazier’s asking price seemingly too high, are the Yankees on the verge of trading for an experienced player to fill the void?

Harrison wants out

Josh Harrison wants out of Pittsburgh, and who can blame him? Following Pittsburgh's recent trades of Andrew McCutchen and Gerrit Cole, Harrison is not happy with the team's decision to “start over,” and he made it clear that he would like to be traded.

Harrison, who has spent his entire seven-year career with the Pirates, said in a statement released Tuesday to The Athletic that "perhaps it would be better for all involved, that I also am traded."

That means the Pirates had better start shopping him around now. The last thing any team wants is a disgruntled player in the locker room and on the field.

Harrison is a stud. While he doesn’t get the hype and press that a lot of other MLB stars get, he can bring a number of teams a player who is solid in the field and a hitter who flirts with a .300 average every season. Harrison’s ability to play 2nd and 3rd base, along with some outfield, makes him even more attractive for teams in need.

On Wednesday MLB Network’s Jon Morosi mentioned on “The Fan Morning Show,” that Harrison would be in high demand in his opinion, with the Yankees, Mets, and Cubs being at the top of that list.

All three teams have several players they could offer for Harrison, however, the Yankees may have the most depth in terms of potential stars.

Red Sox final offer to JD Martinez?

JD Martinez is going to be a very rich man, but how rich depends on where he decides to play this season. While it seems that Martinez has been destined to sign with the Boston Red Sox, for one reason or another the two sides can’t seem to come to an agreement.

The rumor is that the Sox offered a 5-year deal to JD for around $100 million -- and Martinez said “no” because he wants a six-year contract. According to ESPN.com’s Buster Olney, Boston has now made a possible final offer to the right-handed slugger.

Olney reported earlier today via Twitter that he has a strong source indicating that the Red Sox have offered Martinez a five-year deal worth $100 million. It seems now the ball is in Martinez's court. This deal is one year and $80 million dollars short of what Martinez was looking for when last season ended according to Martinez's agent Scott Boras.
