The two bitter rivals appear headed in opposite directions.
While the Yankees just added one of the best starting pitchers in the game, agreeing with Gerrit Cole on a record $324 million contract, the Red Sox are trying to shed payroll.
They are looking to move left-hander David Price, who is owed $96 million over the next three years, according to The Athletic. One potential landing spot is the Padres, who are trying to get rid of infielder/outfielder Wil Myers. However, the Red Sox have not made a lot of progress yet.
The Red Sox are also flirting with the idea of trading star outfielder Mookie Betts, as they may be unwilling to pay him the massive contract he will get this offseason.
It has been an up-and-down four seasons for Price in Boston. He has feuded with the media, battled multiple injuries and has struggled on the mound at times. But Price, 34, also helped the Red Sox win the World Series two seasons ago, winning 16 games that season and having a strong postseason.
But with ownership looking to cut payroll amid luxury-tax concerns, Price could now be on the move.
