Lee in pinstripes? Forget about it. The 37-year-old has turned down an offer from the Yankees, deciding instead to stay retired.
The Yankees and Mets are among teams that are interested in outfielder Brennan Boesch, according to CBSSports.com/WFAN insider Jon Heyman.
It has already been an interesting week at Mets and Yankees camp. Who knows what the next few days will bring?
The right-handed hitter has played all three outfield positions in his six-year career, though he’s predominantly played right field and center field.
New York has approached Derrek Lee about coming out of retirement and resurrecting his career in the Bronx. Lee last played in the big leagues in 2011, playing 85 games for the Orioles and 28 games for the Pirates.
Legendary Yankees closer Mariano Rivera is looking to wave goodbye to baseball with one more World Series ring on his finger.
Rivera wasn’t just the best closer in the history of baseball. His ability to defy logic for 18 seasons makes him one of the most unique athletes of all-time.
Mark Teixeira is going to be out until at least early May with a strained right wrist tendon, the latest major injury setback for the New York Yankees.
Sure, the Yankees are banged-up. But the Mets have the Johan Santana mess — plus an outfield by committee, and not a particularly great committee at that.
“I’m obviously worried about it, because wrists are very unpredictable,” Cashman said. “Even if you can get a positive diagnosis back — which, of course, I’m going to hope for — that still doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods.”
Robinson Cano’s father says he expects the New York Yankees to re-sign their All-Star second baseman rather than let him leave through free agency after the season.
Despite his injury, Cashman appeared to be in good spirits. On his way to the hospital, he texted to WFAN’s Sweeny Murti: “It was awesome.”
Hiroki Kuroda allowed four runs — one earned — and three hits over 1 2/3 innings in his initial exhibition-game start for the Yankees. The Yankees had four errors and gave up six unearned runs. New York has 13 errors in eight games.
Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano says his contract status is on his mind, though not a distraction. Cano is due $15 million in the final season of what became a $57 million, six-year deal and is eligible for free agency after the World Series.
Yankees GM Brian Cashman admitted on WFAN radio Thursday that a “significant” contract extension was offered to Cano. Apparently it wasn’t significant enough.
