MLB rumors Red Sox not only AL East team interested in Zack Wheeler trade

The Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees both need to upgrade their starting pitching before the July 31 non-waiver Major League Baseball trade deadline, and it appears these rivals both are targeting the same New York Mets right-hander. The New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox are competing for the righty hurler, according to Andy Martino of SNY.

Another Mets pitcher, Noah Syndergaard, is likely to be dealt during the offseason instead of the trade deadline at the end of July.

Is Zack Wheeler the answer to at least some of the Boston Red Sox's pitching woes? Recent reports have the Braves, Brewers and Yankees also interested in adding Wheeler to their rotation.

However, Wheeler's traditional numbers don't jump off the page, but the analytics say he is pitching better than his ERA indicates. He is 39-36 with a 3.88 ERA and 1.302 WHIP over his five Major League seasons, enjoying his best season previous year at 12-7 with a 3.31 ERA. The Red Sox may need it more than the Bombers do, however.
