Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports that outfield prospect Billy McKinney is also involved in the Aroldis Chapman trade.

So now we have McKinney, shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres, and right-hander Adam Warren heading to the Yankees along with a fourth unidentified piece. That is a massive haul for New York -- far better than what the Reds received from the Yankees for Chapman this past winter. McKinney has struggled this season at Double-A Tennessee, but he was considered a top-100 prospect leading into 2016 and the 2013 first-rounder is only 21 years old. Chicago landed McKinney from Oakland two years ago in the Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel trade.

Jordan Zimmermann (neck) went four scoreless innings Sunday in his rehab debut with Triple-A Toledo.

Zimmermann scattered four hits over his four shutout frames against the Triple-A affiliate of the Orioles, striking out two and walking none. He only threw 50 pitches, so another minor league rehab start is undoubtedly coming before he returns to the Detroit rotation. The right-hander has been on the disabled list since July 2 because of a right neck strain.

Cubs president Theo Epstein is making it clear that rehabbing slugger Kyle Schwarber is not available for trade, per Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman is known to covet Schwarber, but Sherman says Epstein and Co. would not even discuss the 23-year-old as part of a possible return for Aroldis Chapman or Andrew Miller. Maybe a bigger fish will swim along and change Theo's mind, but it sure appears Schwarber will open the 2017 season in a Cubs uniform. He is done for the 2016 season following a major left knee injury.

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Yankees will get four players from the Cubs in the yet-to-be-finalized Aroldis Chapman trade.

Top shortstop prospect Gleyber Torres is the centerpiece, but Sherman hears the Yankees are also getting Adam Warren back from the Cubs -- he was traded to Chicago last winter in the Starlin Castro trade -- as well as two other prospects. Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner has apparently signed off on the deal, so it's not clear what the hold-up might be. There's been talk of the Cubs possibly trying to work out a pre-trade contract extension with Chapman, who can become a free agent five days after the 2016 World Series.

Hyun Soo Kim (hamstring) will play one more rehab game with Double-A Bowie.

He went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts Sunday in his rehab debut, but to be fair the opposition was throwing a left-handed knuckleballer -- a difficult matchup for any hitter on short notice. Kim will try for better results Monday, but he'll remain on track to rejoin the Orioles on Tuesday no matter what goes down. The outfielder has been on the disabled list since July 19, retroactive to July 11, because of a strained right hamstring.
