With the Yankees currently in Cleveland for a four-game series, players and fans alike were able to get an up-close look at Nick Swisher donning an Indians uniform in Monday’s 11-6 win over the Tribe. Swisher, now the starting first baseman in Cleveland, went 1-3 yesterday with two walks and a run scored. With a ...
It was a busy day for the Yankees yesterday, but not a pretty one. The Yankees began the day yesterday by claiming right handed reliever Dan Otero off waivers from the San Francisco Giants.. Then they made the Vernon Wells trade official by sending outfielder Exicardo Cayones and lefty reliever Kramer Sneed to the Angels. They continued ...
I came across this in Joel Sherman of the NY Post's column this morning. It's nothing official it's more of an educated guess on Sherman's part, but he explained that the Yankees likely have a budget of about $8-$10 million that they are willing to spend on the 2014 payroll this offseason in the form ...
It looks like the Yankees are going to need a new catcher this offseason as Russell Martin has agreed to a two-year deal with the Pirates worth $17 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports and David Waldstein of the New York Times. The Yankees were apparently discussing terms with Martin in the two-year, $12-$14 ...
There are a number of teams interested in free agent catcher Russell Martin, but it appears to be coming down to a race between the Yankees and the Pittsburgh Pirates, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Heyman says that the Pirates are prepared to offer him a three-year $25 million deal. He added that so ...
Forget what you've heard. Three years was yesterday. Free agent catcher Russell Martin is now apparently looking for a four-year deal worth $9-10 million annually, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPNNewYork.com. Marchand doubts the Yankees would bite on a deal of that size and I tend to agree although I wouldn't be surprised. Really, as long as they ...
Earlier this morning, I passed along a quote from Yankees GM Brian Cashman about him having a strong preference against, but willing to hand out multi-year offers. Which is a good thing if they want to re-sign catcher Russell Martin because he is looking for a three-year deal, according to Mark Feinsand of the New ...
The Yankees continued to negotiate with catcher Russell Martin over the weekend and the two sides, which were recently far apart on dollars, made progress even though Martin is also talking with at least one other team, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Matin may be in negotiations with only one other team, but he ...
Russell Martin has been a popular guy in such a thin catchers market this offseason, but the Yankees haven't turned their attention to him yet as they are trying to lock down their pitching first and he seems more than willing to wait for them. “They've been dragging their feet,’’ an industry source told George King ...
Teams that are looking for catching help in the free agent market could turn toward Russell Martin for help, but Baseball Canada might consider him as their next shortstop in the World Baseball Classic. Apparently Canada already has a potential catcher in George Kottaras, but it doesn't have a shortstop which is where Martin comes in. He's ...
