Report: Yankees sign Carlos Beltran 15


My, my, my. The Yankees just keep on rolling.

The same day the Yankees lost Robinson Cano to the Seattle Mariners, the Yankees reportedly signed Carlos Beltran for 3 years and $45 Million pending a physical.

This is the third big free agent signing for the Yankees this offseason. The Yankees previously signed Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury earlier in the offseason.

    It sounds like Yankees will wait until Arod's ruling before re-signing Kuroda.

    Soriano will play 2B or DH with Jeter at SS?

    With Ellsbury and Beltran locked up in OF for 2 or 3 years, Yankees can package either OFers and P to get better SP like Cubs' Samardzija. He will probably cost an half of Kuroda's tag.

    Now Gardner starts against Righthanders and sits against Lefthanders and late inning defensive replacement. A good player but can't hit Lefthanded pitching.

    Wow, what a makeover. I'm looking for the inevitable trade that results from the Beltran signing. We now have 6 OFs. They might go with 5, Gardner in LF, Ellsbury in CF, Beltran as RF/DH, with Suzuki as part time RF, and Soriano as 2/3s time DH, so…. Wells must go. Also, let's be honest, what does that mean for Jeter? He has no range at SS and the DH ABs seem to be take up with Beltran and Soriano. I think they should move him to 3B.
    Jeter at 3B and trade Wells for what you can get.

    Three things they still have to address with no money left to address it (if 189 is real): 2B, 3B, and SP3.

    All I want for Christmas is Masahiro Tanaka.

    I'm guessing that they'll attempt to trade Gardner for the SP slot. I agree that Jeter should be at 3rd. I sure hope they aren't thinking of Soriano as a stop-gap at 2nd.
