Rumor: Yankees haven’t gotten calls on Maxwell 1

As I wrote this morning, Yankees outfielder Justin Maxwell‘s days in Pinstripes seem numbered because he is out of options doesn’t look like he’s going to make the team out of spring training.

Maxwell has been impressive this spring and there already have been teams that have expressed interest in him. However, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman told Chad Jennings of the Journal News that teams haven’t been calling him looking to deal for him.

It still seems unlikely that he would pass through waivers, but if nobody is calling than there seems to be a chance. It wasn’t likely that Chris Dickerson would make it through waivers either about a month ago, but he did. As great as it would be for the Yankees to hold on to Maxwell, he is a former major leaguer who looks ready for the show. It would almost be a shame if he didn’t get a shot somewhere.

    Justin paid his dues at Scranton last year. I liked his game when he was on the Nationals. He didn't hit a lick but hustled for a terrible team. He definitely deserves a chance to make a major league roster to prove he can hit on the major league level.
