Yanks trade Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell to San Diego for Jabari Bash.  Pure salary dump and gave them Mitchell for it.

I heard they are about 25 million under the soft cap now.

Who is going to play 3rd?

I think they are going to try to convince Todd to come back on a 1 year deal or 2 year with an option.  They definitely want a good defender there and Andujar still needs work on his 3rd base defense.

Yep, this is what I read as well.  Makes sense.  Read that Cashman was always higher on Machado than Harper and this keeps 3rd base a possibility in 2019 if the Yanks decide to go that route.

That said, it would be awesome if both Andujar and Torres are the starting 3B and 2B and both play well.

I like Hicks.  He falls in the - they all can't be superstars category for me.  They need more switch hitters.  I would hope that they plan to play Stanton at first and DH a bunch anyway, though I admit that I am probably not as familiar with him as most.. 

Hicks’ defense in Centerfield alone makes him worth keeping

Another option is Brandon Phillips on a one year deal at 2B and plug in Torreyes at 3B

I just saw in the Post that they have apparently traded Headley for some light hitting outfielder according to the Post.  I always peek at the Post when I see it in DC What do you think?  I thought Mitchell was a viable pitcher

Exactly what it was.  Headley for some reason was so much better offensively when he played 1B but Bird has that now

If Bird stays healthy....  huge if.

A lefty, hitting 3rd or 5th.   Between Judge and Stanton or between Stanton and Sanchez.   He should feast, no one will pitch around him, guys always on base, tons of righty pitching.  Bird and DiDi should go off this year.

That would be incredible. Big ifs for both this soon, but man this team would be frightening if they performed.

Francesa loves Bird and he looked good late last season.  Headley was pretty much a bust but overall Cashman has been killing it in recent years even if it was Stick who scouted a lot of these players

For Bird, it's just health.   If he's healthy, he could be really, really good.   Good bat, good glove, it's just health

Yanks resigned CC and actually at less money than probably what he could have gotten somewhere else. Nice

That's a nice deal.   He is on a team that can compete, where he likes to be and they got a very fair market 1 year deal.

CC could have gotten a 2 year deal with more money on the open market.  He must really like it here and we like him

Yanks going hard for Gerrit Cole off of Pit.

He's the guy they draft in the 1st round, couldn't sign, and then he was the #1 overall by Pitt.

I’d pass on him...  at least at the current asking price

Good to see you!

Yeah, I don't know he's that big an upgrade to give up a ton.

Agree, I’m ok with our current rotation and a deep bullpen

Yanks reached agreements with all their arbitration eligible players according to ESPN, which puts their salaries at $177 mil, which is $20 mil less than the luxury tax threshold.  This put's them in prime position to spend big money next year without getting a huge tax hit (reduced from 50% to 20%)

No need to spend big money right now go after the big aces like Kershaw next year

So odd.   Chance Adams, #51 overall.    Chance Adams, not in top 100.

Still, that's great especially since several guys were just promoted to the majors last year.

So did we end up getting a veteran to play either second or third for half the season until Torres comes up?

Is there an update on this? I thought the timeline was 6 months for non-pitchers on TJ?

No, the early rumors are that Yanks are fine staying inhouse at 3rd & 2nd until Torres & Andujar are ready.  Word is that the Yanks will call up Torres around the 2nd or 3rd week of the season so they get an extra year of service time (if they call him up to start the season he becomes an UFA a year early).  If they do that, they can go with Torreyes for the 1st 10 games.  If Wade loses the dear-in-headlights look like he did last year with his callup he could be an option.

Looks like Gleyber is already good to go

 

Still wouldn’t mind another veteran infielder depth is never a bad thing

Hopefully this Arizona infielder we just traded for works out as well as the last one. I see some similarities. Drury who’s only 24, still has some untapped potential.

I like it.  They didn't give up a ton, gives them more depth, he's young, and not expensive.

Like the Drury pickup he’s had pretty good offensive numbers for an infielder last couple years.  Looks like we are set at 3B
