3) NY Mets player the NY Yankees should target to save their season: Brooks Raley

You can never have too many relievers. I'm not suggesting the Yankees make deals to acquire both Robertson and Brooks Raley, but the southpaw could be an even more intriguing arm for the Yankees to look into acquiring.

Raley was acquired by the Mets this offseason to be their primary left-handed reliever and he's lived up to the hype he came here with. Raley was coming off of a career year with Tampa Bay. Usually those relievers stumble after leaving the Rays, but like Aaron Loup in the past, Raley has been just as good, if not better.

In 41 appearances, he has a 2.14 ERA on the season. He's a guy Aaron Boone would feel comfortable throwing in just about any situation against any hitter. He's that good. The best part about Raley is he has an additional year of control. That additional year could make him unavailable at the deadline, but if he's available, he'd give the Yankees a much-needed boost.

The Yankees are currently without Loaisiga and will be without Scott Effross and Lou Trivino for the remainder of the season. Their bullpen seems to always have some injury issues so adding some depth isn't the worst idea in the world.
