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.
