Archer in pinstripes this season.According to Fancred'sJon Heyman http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-jorge-soler-jersey
, the New York Yankees are "not likely" to acquire the right-handed starter prior to Tuesday鈥檚 non-waiver trade deadline. Heyman explained it doesn't make "much sense" for the American League East鈥檚 second-place team to trade for him unless it moves Sonny Gray.Archer has a 4.31 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 102 strikeouts in 96 innings this season after posting an ERA over 4.00 in each of the last two years. Despite the solid but unspectacular numbers, he is still just 29 years old and finished with a sub-3.50 ERA three straight seasons from 2013 through 2015.The two-time All-Star would also bring an element of team control that many deadline acquisitions don't,seeingas how he isn鈥檛 set to be an unrestricted free agent until 2022, perSpotrac.While the Yankees are 5.5 games behind the Boston Red Sox in the AL East and a middling 13th in the league in starting pitcher ERA http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-drew-butera-jersey
, perESPN.com, the rotation has stabilized of late thanks to the emergence of Gray. He has allowed just two earned runs in his last 16.1 innings, giving New York a weapon alongside the newly acquired J.A. Happ, Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and CC Sabathia.With Happ now in the rotation and Gray bouncing back http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-whit-merrifield-jersey
, there is less need for Archer as New York pursues a spot in the postseason. If Las Vegas is right, the New York Yankees are going to hit a lot of home runs during the 2019 season.BetOnline released its latest odds for who will lead the major leagues in long balls during the upcoming campaign, and Yankees sluggers Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge topped the list. Stanton was given +700 odds (bet $100 to win $700), while Judge checked in at +1,000.Los Angeles Angels center fielder Mike Trout Cheslor Cuthbert Jersey

Martinez and Texas Rangers left fielder Joey Gallo round out the top five.B/R Betting br_bettingWho will be MLB鈥檚 home run leader this season?Giancarlo Stanton: +700Aaron Judge: +1000Mike Trout: +1600J.D. Martinez: +1800Joey Gallo: +1800Khris Davis: +2000Bryce Harper: +2500Nolan Arenado: +2500(Odds via BetOnline) zD2Mv0RcfwWhile he may not have the name recognition across fanbases throughout the league as Trout, Stanton and Judge, Oakland Athletics designated hitter Khris Davis appears to be the best value bet. He is sixth on the list at +2,000 and is coming off a season that saw him lead the league in home runs with 48.He has also been a steady source of long-ball consistency after drilling more than 40 in each of the last three seasons, so there is no reason to think 2018 was an anomaly.As for the Yankees sluggers Brian Flynn Jersey
, Stanton hit 38 last season, and Judge blasted 27 in 2018, although it should be noted the latter dealt with injury concerns and played just 112 games. Stanton was also adjusting to the American League and a new environment after he was traded from the Miami Marlins.They each flashed their high ceiling when it comes to homers in 2017 when Stanton hit a head-turning 59 and Judge finished with 52. Either of those numbers would have led the league in 2018.Even if they fall short of Davis' total again, the fact the two favorites on this list of odds are in the same lineup should serve as a warning to the rest of the American League as the season approaches.
