Yankees never made an offer to David Robertson

SAN DIEGO -- The Yankees never made a formal offer to David Robertson, sources confirmed to ESPN. The Yankees ultimately decided that, with Andrew Miller signed for four years and $36 million and with Dellin Betances coming back, they could do without Robertson. Robertson proceeded to take the White Sox's offer of four years and $46 million. YES' Jack Curry first reported the lack of an offer to Robertson from the Yankees. In the end, the Yankees chose the logic we laid out in this space a couple of months ago, when we recommended the team should Spend Hal's Money on Miller.

Rapid Reaction: Does Andrew Miller's arrival mean David Robertson's departure?

The Yankees have added lefty reliever Andrew Miller on a four-year deal. What it means: The Yankees could have the strongest -- and tallest -- setup duo in baseball. The 6-foot-7 Miller was as dominant as the 6-foot-8 Dellin Betances this past season. If they repeated their 2014s in tandem, the Yankees could shorten games in a punishing fashion. However, it could mean: David Robertson is a goner. Before the Miller deal was completed -- for four years and $36 million -- I was told the Yankees could sign both Miller and Robertson.

Craig Kimbrel unsurprisingly claimed the top spot, and was followed in order by Aroldis Chapman and Wade Davis. Yankees free agent target Andrew Miller ranks fourth, current Yankee Dellin Betances ranks fifth, and potential ex-Yankee David Robertson ranks sixth.
