Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said on Tuesday that Alex Rodriguez’s days as an everyday fielder are over and he hopes A-Rod will be New York’s full-time designated hitter.
Alex Rodriguez is going to have to adjust his expectations. Especially now that the Yankees have handed $52 million to third baseman Chase Headley.
Chase Headley is staying with the Yankees, a sign that New York is not counting on Alex Rodriguez to play third base regularly.
Brian Cashman left the Winter Meetings in San Diego on Thursday without needed pieces for his baseball team, but that doesn’t mean the Yankees are a finished product for 2015.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman said Matthew Krause, the team’s strength and conditioning coordinator, visited A-Rod on Wednesday in Miami.
When you are promoting Andrew Miller and making a run at Chase Headley, you might as well tell your fans you’re going to try really hard to finish in third place next season.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed Tuesday he had no interest in retaining Robertson once New York agreed Friday to a $36 million, four-year deal with Andrew Miller.
Imagine. Andrew Miller in the seventh, Dellin Betances in the eighth, and David Robertson to close. It’s the type of pen a lot of teams only dream about.
Both teams have much to do. If they have a successful Winter Meetings, or at least lay the groundwork for some post-meetings deals, then perhaps they can talk about the postseason in a serious manner.
Brian Cashman has holes to fill. He doesn’t have the farm talent to fill them all, or leverage for a trade. So that leaves free agency. It’s the Yankees’ way.
The Yankees’ general manager took part in the Covenant House’s “Sleep Out” movement on Thursday night by sleeping on the streets of Manhattan.
Though still undecided about pursuing Scherzer, the Yankees could adjust their offseason approach after having “brief contact” with the two-time All-Star’s agent, according to CBS’ Jon Heyman.
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and New York City FC chief business officer Tim Pernetti will sleep on the streets of New York City on Thursday.
The $15.3 million qualifying offer rejected by Robertson would have made him the highest-paid closer in baseball. It appears he’s still aiming for that distinction along with the security of a multi-year deal.
Spring training is more than three months from now, and already the spotlight is on Alex Rodriguez. Third base? First base? Designated hitter? The bench?
