Yankees likely done spending big this offseason

With a 2015 payroll already surging past $200 million, the Yankees appear to be done shopping for the priciest free agents this winter. And general manager Brian Cashman isn't the only one in the front office saying so.

The lingering impact of the Yankees second-half additions

By my count, the Yankees added 10 brand new players to the big league roster — players who had not been in the organization when the season started — between the July 15 All-Star Game and the end of the regular season. Second-half moves like that happen every year as teams try to plug holes […] The post The lingering impact of the Yankees second-half additions appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Does Chris signing cap Yanks' offseason?

NEW YORK -- The Yankees signed a starting pitcher this week, but I think it's safe to surmise Chris Capuano is not what Yankees fans were hoping to find in their Chanukah gift pile. And yet, unless there is a seismic shift in the club's thinking, Capuano could be the last major free-agent signing for the Yankees between now and the beginning of spring training on Feb. 20. That means no Big Game James, as in Shields, and no Super Max, as in Max Scherzer.

Reliever off the board: Romo back to San Francisco

Clearly Andrew Miller and Dellin Betances are very good relief pitchers, and chances are, one of those two should be fine in the closer role next season. But I still think the Yankees would be wise to look into an experienced closer to take the ninth inning out of spring training, with the understanding that […] The post Reliever off the board: Romo back to San Francisco appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Capuano: I chose Yankees over Japan

Chris Capuano said he decided to stay in the AL East instead of going to the Far East because he will have a chance to start and received good money. "I love Japan, but if you get the opportunity to pitch here, in a city like New York, that trumps any sentimentality I had towards Japan," Capuano said on Sirius XM's Major League Baseball Radio channel. "I still wouldn't rule it out at some point, but a chance to play for the Yankees, on a good contract, I couldn't pass that up.

Free agent starters: Yankees missing opportunities or dodging bullets?

When the 2014 season ended, Hal Steinbrenner went on the radio and said this about the Yankees offseason priorities: “We know we need a shortstop, of course. I think with Nova coming back probably not until May, I think we need a starting pitcher. And then we’re going to have to go from there.” In […] The post Free agent starters: Yankees missing opportunities or dodging bullets? appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.
