Zambrano to Yankees? Agent says no.

Agent Barry Praver said that he hasn’t heard from Cubs’ general manager Jim Hendry regarding a New York Post report that stated the Yankees inquired about a trade for starter Carlos Zambrano.


Praver said he has not heard from Cubs general manager Jim Hendry about a possible deal. Zambrano, who has a full no-trade clause, would need to agree to any trade.

“Jim has not approached us about Carlos waiving the no trade provision of his contract nor is Carlos interested in waiving it,” Praver said. — Ken Rosenthal

According to, Zambrano is not interested in waiving his no-trade clause in order to join the Yankees. Even if he were, the asking price for Big Z would probably be too much for New York, who would no doubt have to part with a big leaguer like Melky Cabrera or Brett Gardner.
