Rumor: Yankees Tried to Acquire Franklin Morales

franklin-moralesVia Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports:

Yankees were among teams that spoke to Rockies about Franklin Morales. Red Sox got him for cash or player to be named.

Considering that the Red Sox got him for almost nothing, the Yankees must not have tried very hard.

Morales, a 25-year-old lefty specialist, hasn’t had a lot of success at the major league level in five seasons, but he’s still young, left handed, and has a decent K/9 ratio (His K/9 has been 8.6 since 2009). So that’s why they were interested in him.

Considering their lefty options are sad major leaguer Boone Logan, and minor leaguers Randy Flores and Andy Sisco are their other options, maybe they should have tried a little harder.

    Sisco was just released within the last week.

  2. Mickey says:

    Cashman regularly can't make those kind of deals, while the Bosox just give up thrash or money and get whoever they want. There's a strong rumor inside the Padres organization that Hoyer is going to try and trade Heath Bell to the Bosox, he already gave them Adrián as he promised them(and Adrian, i know, got mad, but ultimately decided it was for the best… and i know that personally).
