Monday is the final day that teams have the opportunity to tender contracts. Chris Stewart of the Yankees shouldn’t expect to get one.
According to Chris Cotillo of the MLB Daily Dish, the Yankees are discussing the possibility of trading Stewart since he is gaining interest in the trade market. The Yankees are also attempting to avoid arbitration with him. They are hoping that they could get something done by the end of the weekend but the Yankees will certaintly do one of two things by the time Monday comes:
1) Stewart will be traded to another team
2) He’ll be non-tendered and become a free agent.
Well Chris Stewart, we hardly knew ye.
