YANKEES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yankees non-tender Jacob Lindgren, who will probably be back at some point soon

Prior to tonight’s deadline, the Yankees non-tendered left-hander Jacob Lindgren, the team announced. He’s now a free agent. All other pre-arbitration and arbitration-eligible players received contract offers. The Yankees now have one open spot on the 40-man roster. Lindgren will miss the entire 2017 season following Tommy John surgery, and his non-tender is not entirely unexpected...

The new Collective Bargaining Agreement is kinda good, but mostly bad for the Yankees

Earlier this week, MLB and the MLBPA worked out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which will cover the 2017-21 seasons. The owners will reportedly vote on the new agreement on December 13th, which is merely a formality. Once they give the thumbs up, the new CBA will be ratified and everything will be good to go. The new CBA won’t have any direct impact on this offseason. Teams...

Yankees’ Struggles Aren’t Fault of CBA

While everyone else basks in the glow of continued labor peace and begins to explore the minutia of the latest pact between the league and its players, the Yankees remain committed to a PR campaign against the collective bargaining agreement and its (negative) influence on the team’s ability to compete. The latest critique comes courtesy New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman...

Yankees GM Cashman rappelled down a 22-story building

How the new CBA is helping the Yankees

The owners and players made a smart play for baseball by agreeing to a new collective bargaining agreement Wednesday evening. At the moment it appears the CBA could also be good for the Yankees in the not-so-distant future.

Jeter says golf most frustrating sport he's played

NASSAU, Bahamas (AP) Derek Jeter needed something to fill his competitive void when he retired from baseball. The New York Yankees shortstop chose golf, and just like everyone else, it's been a challenge to master. ''It's frustrating,'' Jeter said Wednesday after playing the pro-am with Rickie Fowler at the Hero World Challenge. ''It's probably the most frustrating thing I've...

Luis Severino, reliever?

When Luis Severino was first called up to the majors, I had visions in my head of an ace. This ace was set to take the Yankee fanbase and the rest of the league by storm, firing 98-mph heaters and wicked changeups all over the place. He was going to take the ball every fifth day, setting the Yankees up with a very good chance to win every time that day occurred. Some of that luster...

New York Yankees: Would Matt Holliday be a good fit?

As the offseason continues to progress, there are countless rumors that go around surrounding each team and who they are interested in.

But, this is still the New York Yankees we’re talking about, and part of their identity is being perpetually competitive.

Yankees reportedly not interested in Yoenis Cespedes

After clearing up a ton of room on their payroll following the retirements of Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira as well as the trade of Brian McCann earlier this month, the New York Yankees will have money to spend during the winter. But don’t expect any of that cash to be doled out to New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who is considered one of the most highly-regarded free...

Report: Yankees do not plan to target Yoenis Cespedes

Despite an admission that the New York Yankees have spoken to the agent of Yoenis Cespedes, the free agent outfielder is reportedly not in their plans. According to Christian Red of the New York Daily News, acquiring Cespedes is, at least for the moment, not a priority for the Yankees, though general manager Brian Cashman did speak to Brodie Van Wagenen, the slugger’s agent. ...

What a ‘bad’ Gary Sanchez looks like

In all likelihood, we’ve only seen the best Gary Sanchez has to offer. Sure, he’s young enough to improve aspects of his game, but it seems improbable that he’ll slug over .650 next season and look like the most dominant offensive weapon in the sport. It could happen, but it won’t. Instead, Sanchez will show himself to be an enormously talented and valuable young player rather...

MLB scout believes Yankees are gearing up for Mike Trout trade

The Los Angeles Angels had a down year in 2016, but Mike Trout continued to show why many have labeled him the best player in baseball.
