The Yankees would reportedly get a draft pick and infield prospect Shed Long in the deal. The team's effort "appears to be getting more serious", Heyman writes, noting that previous suitors for Gray have included the Reds, Giants, Brewers, Padres, Athletics, Braves and Mariners.
Gray, 29, is under contract with the Yankees for 2019, and is scheduled to make $7.5 million on his current deal.
Gray remained a ground ball-oriented pitcher in 2018, with a 50 percent ground ball rate only a slight drop-off from previous seasons.
There is a prevailing thought throughout the Reds organization that Gray's former college pitching coach, who's now the Reds pitching coach, Derek Johnson, might be able to help Gray get back on track.

Gray is coming off one of the worst years of his career as he posted an 11-9 record with a 4.90 ERA while taking a demotion to the bullpen. Prior to 2018, he'd only had one season with an ERA higher than 3.55 - an injury-marred 2017 season - and had even finished third in 2015 American League Cy Young voting.
As we mentioned earlier, recent acquisitions Wood and Roark, who are slated to be part of the Reds' starting rotation next season, will be free agents after the upcoming season.
Gray's home and away splits last season are staggering.
The right-hander seemed to implode in every single appearance in the Bronx, pitching to a miserable 6.98 ERA at home. The problem, however, is that Long is limited to playing only second base. But let's not ignore the Reds' other obvious obstacle: Great American Ballpark.
