Prior to the MLB lockout, the New York Yankees had been mulling the idea of a potential blockbuster trade to acquire Oakland Athletics star Matt Olson. The A’s are reported to be willing to part with Olson, due to fears that he’d walk away for nothing in free agency in just a couple of seasons. Well, the Yankees and A’s reportedly held discussions over an Olson trade, though nothing materialized before the lockout. Per Andy Martino, in their discussions with Oakland, the Yankees declared two of their top prospects to be untouchable.
