Multiple execs say unless no-doubt No. 1-ish SP shows on market Yankees have made clear won’t move Banuelos, Betances, Montero, Romine.
This is the way it should be. Maybe being overprotective of Austin Romine is a little bit much, but holding on to Manny Banuelos, Dellin Betances, and Jesus Montero should be no-brainers at this point. Ubaldo Jimenez and James Shields seem to be the only big name pitchers available. If the Yankees can work out a deal for one of them then the situation changes.
