  1. Brett Gardner is drawing “significant” trade interest

    Dec 7, 2013, 3:09 PM EDT

    With last night’s signing of Carlos Beltran, the Yankees officially have a surplus of outfielders. And more than a few teams are wondering if they would consider cashing in on that depth in order to upgrade in other areas. Source: Yankees receiving significant interest in Brett Gardner and willing to trade him. They're not shopping…

  2. Yankees reportedly in on everyone now that Robinson Cano is off the board

    Dec 6, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Carlos Beltran

    Earlier today, second baseman Robinson Cano signed with the Mariners on a ten-year, $240 million contract, leaving the Yankees out in the cold with an infield that includes the embattled Alex Rodriguez, the hobbled Derek Jeter, the recovering Mark Teixeira, and the recently-signed Kelly Johnson. Now that they don’t have to set aside space for…

  3. Robinson Cano’s dad says the Yankees “don’t seem to want” his son

    Last we heard, free agent second baseman Robinson Cano was reportedly on a private plane to Seattle to meet with the Mariners, who are prepared to offer him $225 million over the course of a nine-year contract. Meanwhile, the Yankees have been pretty firm about how high they are willing to go in negotiations. And as…

  4. Report: Yankees trying to put a time limit on Robinson Cano

    Robinson Cano

    According to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York the Yankees “plan on talking to the agents for Robinson Cano on Monday to reiterate that they will only be able to keep their best offer on the table for so long.” Marchand reports that the Yankees are working on possible deals with multiple other free agents…

  5. Tigers win big in shedding Prince Fielder’s contract

    Nov 20, 2013, 9:01 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Give lots of credit to Dave Dombrowski; the potential nightmare back half of Prince Fielder‘s nine-year, $214 million contract is no more. Instead, Fielder and the $168 million he’s still owed is gone after two mildly disappointing seasons in Detroit, with Ian Kinsler‘s more palatable deal coming back. The Tigers sent along $30 million in…

  6. Tigers, Rangers discussing trade that could involve Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    Prince Fielder

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting that the Tigers and Rangers have discussed a trade that would send first baseman Prince Fielder to the Rangers and second baseman Ian Kinsler to the Tigers. In terms of OPS, the Rangers had the second-worst production from their first baseman in the American League, beating only the…

  7. The Rangers could shop Ian Kinsler or Elvis Andrus

    Nov 6, 2013, 2:19 PM EDT

    Ian Kinsler

    Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers are considering trading either second baseman Ian Kinsler or shortstop Elvis Andrus to make room for Jurickson Profar. Kinsler is guaranteed $57 million over the next four seasons, Andrus is owed $126 million over the next nine. A such, neither would be easy to move. But neither would be…

  8. The Yankees have expressed interest in Brandon Phillips

    Or “checked in” as we say this early in the offseason. You know, so as not to be so obvious about it and so we won’t come off as desperate. Heyman: The Yankees, looking to set themselves up in case star second baseman Robinson Cano signs elsewhere, have checked in with the Reds regarding Brandon Phillips and also asked about free-agent second…

  9. The Yankees have expressed an interest in Omar Infante

    Omar Infante Getty

    Another way to read this is “the Yankees really do plan on re-signing Robinson Cano, but (a) they don’t want to be left with their pants around their ankles in the event he bolts; and (b) even if he does want to come back, it’s be nice to at least pretend we could go a…

  10. Tigers will be hard-pressed to make big signing this winter

    Nov 3, 2013, 7:10 PM EDT

    ALCS - Boston Red Sox v Detroit Tigers - Game Five

    The Tigers have made a habit of big splashes in the offseasons. Three years ago, it was Victor Martinez. Then Prince Fielder. Last winter, the Tigers signed both Anibal Sanchez and Torii Hunter. Those deals have helped them reach the postseason each year, but the ultimate prize has remained out of reach. As the Tigers…

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  12. Shane Victorino’s grand slam puts the Red Sox back on top in the seventh inning of Game 6

    Oct 19, 2013, 11:35 PM EDT

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game One

    Shane Victorino stopped switch-hitting again. For the Red Sox, it’s a good thing he did. With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the seventh, Victorino drove a Jose Veras curve down the left field line into the seats atop the Green Monster. The Red Sox took back the lead, 5-2 with…

    Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera played with a sore groin throughout most of the second half of the season, limiting his ability to defend his Triple Crown. The soreness has continued to bother him throughout the post-season both at the plate and defensively at third base. Opposing teams have considered attacking him with bunts, but…

    The Tigers are inching closer to the Red Sox in Game 5 of the ALCS. After Jon Lester walked Victor Martinez to lead off the bottom of the sixth inning, he bounced back by striking out Jhonny Peralta swinging. However, Omar Infante followed with a bloop single which dropped in front of a diving Jacoby…

    Jake Peavy‘s fourth career postseason outing is off to a poor start in Detroit. A really, really poor start. Peavy made it through the first inning unscathed, but he allowed a single to Victor Martinez to open the bottom of the second and then issued a pair of walks to load the bases. Omar Infante…

    ALCS - Detroit Tigers v Boston Red Sox - Game Two

    Through the first 14 innings, the ALCS had been a pitcher-dominated affair. Anibal Sanchez and the Tiger bullpen held the Red Sox hitless through eight and two-thirds innings in Game 1 and Scherzer has held the Sox hitless through five in Game 2. To their credit, the Sox pitching has been nearly as good —…
