Rumor: Yankees getting interest in Justin Maxwell

Yankees outfielder Justin Maxwell is putting together an impressive spring, but even though he is unlikely to make the Yankees out of spring training the young outfielder who is out of options is drawing interest from other teams.

According to George King of the NY Post, the Astros and the Orioles have interested in Maxwell. King said that the teams have not contacted the Yankees which would lead us to believe that he has spoken with them directly.

Perhaps now that there are injury concerns with Curtis Granderson (elbow) and Nick Swisher (groin) the Yankees will consider keeping Maxwell around, but he is likely a victim of a numbers crunch. Since he is out of options the Yankees best bet may be to trade him. It’s unlikely he would bring much of a return though, maybe a longshot, lower level prospect at best.
