With the All-Star break, and more importantly, the trade deadline drawing near, Yankees fans can start to ask an important question. How much longer?

How much longer will the trio of Dellin Betances, Andrew Miller and Aroldis Chapman be all in pinstripes down in the Yankees bullpen? Out of the three, Betances is the one most likely to stay, with Miller and Chapman drawing some interest in the opening market.

Food for thought, the Yankees are 15-1 when they turn to all three relievers in the same game.

More news from around the American League East:

  • After trading for Aaron Hill on Thursday, the Red Sox have appeared to shifted gears to the starting pitching market, with Jeremy Hellickson being one of the names they are scouting.
  • The Orioles could use an upgrade in their starting rotation, and they have an option in their bullpen in the form of Dylan Bundy. That being said, Bundy has found a home in the bullpen and the Orioles should probably hold off on that for a bit.
  • Toronto inked 13 July 2 international free agents, including two for the maximum that can be spent on a single player.
  • Following their worst 22-game stretch in franchise history, the Rays may be in need of a massive shake up.
