Jacoby Ellsbury has run out of high-priced Yankees buffers

TAMPA — The legion of self-loathing Yankees fans no longer have Alex Rodriguez and, to a lesser degree, Mark Teixeira to shower with hate. The Baby Bombers haven’t failed in the clutch enough to draw the wrath, Brett Gardner is a fan favorite, and Chase Headley and Starlin Castro are complementary players. That leaves Jacoby Ellsbury...

Revisiting the Brett Gardner/Brandon Phillips trade that wasn’t

Did New York do the right thing in rejecting the deal a few years back? On December 11, 2013, word hit the Twittersphere that the Yankees rejected a deal that would have sent Brett Gardner to the Reds in return for Brandon Phillips. New York was trying to replace the loss of Robinson Cano at second base at the time, and Phillip was coming off a decent season. This was, of course, before the Yankees extended Gardner and went through a number of ill-fated decisions at second base, such as Brian Roberts and Stephen Drew, before ultimately landing Starlin Castro from the Cubs. Phillips’...

Sherman: The Yankees have “let some clubs know” Starlin Castro is available

According to Joel Sherman, the Yankees have “let some clubs know” second baseman Starlin Castro is available in trade talks. This was apparently part of their efforts to trade Brett Gardner and Chase Headley earlier this winter. Seems they made any veteran making decent money available.

Yankees have made Starlin Castro available for trade

The Yankees are trying to part ways with another veteran. After the blockbuster signing of Aroldis Chapman, the Yankees had an offseason on the quiet side. But that could be in for a shake up in the next few days. According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, New York has made Starlin Castro available for trade. The Yankees are hoping the second baseman can stir up more interest than the club’s previous attempts to shop Chase Headley and Brett Gardner. Castro’s numbers for the Yankees were average in his first season with the club. He slashed .270/.300/.433 in 2016. His 21 home runs...

Yankees Made Starlin Castro Available In Trade Talks

The Yankees explored trades for several high-priced veterans on their roster this winter, with Joel Sherman of the New York Post reporting that Starlin Castro was among these names.  The Yankees “let some clubs know [Castro] was available,” which comes short of actually shopping the second baseman but it does indicate at least an openness…
