New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is not seeking any trades at this time, reports Anthony McCarron of the New York Daily News.

"I’d rather not do anything, if possible," Cashman said Monday. "I’d rather keep our prospects, keep our payroll down. That’s what I’d always like to do. But at the same time, I want to get better."

Cashman is happy with the makeup of the Yankees and says there are no glaring areas of need. New York entered today with the best record in Major League Baseball, 45-28.

Yankees starters have pitched much better of late, and though ace C.C. Sabathia was placed on the disabled list today, he’s only expected to miss two starts due to his strained groin. Yankees hitters haven’t been good with runners in scoring position, but they’ve still managed to score the sixth-most runs in the majors.

While Cashman and company feel set for the time being, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports that if Brett Gardner does not continue to recover and be on track for a July return, the Yankees will seek a speedy outfielder who can play center field.
