    The package the Royals would get for their star player and a really solid bullpen piece is a bit of a risk. Garcia and Florial haven’t done much with their big league time to impress and Torres has been struggling recently, not quite living up to his prospect hype. Everson Pereira is an interesting name here. He was rumored to be a part of the Joey Gallo trade but was held out for unknown reasons. He’s #13 on MLB.com’s Yankees top 30 prospect list and could be a diamond in the rough. The question with this trade is whether or not the Royals would finally be willing to part with Merrifield. If they are, then the Yankees could make sense. With a few question marks in the outfield (Frazier, Gardner, Hicks) and an interesting infield picture, Merrifield could be a Kris Bryant type of utility player and have high impact production wherever you put him. Pair him with DJ Lemahieu, and they could do any number of infield combos. Say they let Rizzo walk. Lemahieu could slide to 1st and Merrifield could play second. Or, with Torres gone, Merrifield could play third and Urshela could play short, or they could call up one of their high-level middle-infield prospects. Thoughts?
