Yankees Not Targeting Max Scherzer

Dec 19, 2014 8:43 AM

The New York Yankees confirmed Thursday that they are highly unlikely to big on free-agent Max Scherzer.

"The chances of us bringing in a guy for six [years] and $25 million or over in my opinion is virtually none,'' president Randy Levine said. "At the end of the day you have to be realistic in any organization."

Levine did not mention Scherzer by name, but his comments echoed those of two sources who spoke with ESPN on Wednesday.

"He's a great pitcher," the source said of Scherzer, "but not even the Yankees can have three $25 [million] to $30 million pitchers on the payroll. You just can't."

Cashman: A-Rod Now Full-Time DH

Dec 16, 2014 9:00 PM

Brian Cashman is hoping that Alex Rodriguez can be the everyday designated hitter for the New York Yankees.

Cashman confirmed Tuesday that Chase Headley will be the team's third baseman.

"I can't expect Alex to be anything," Cashman said. "I've got to think the worst and hope for the best. Even before the suspension, he wasn't the same player at third base on the defensive or offensive side. And that was before the suspension.

"And now he's been out of the game for a year. He's approaching 40 years of age. And just to automatically assume given his circumstances that he'll be able to plug right in, play third as an everyday guy and hold up and be productive, I think that would be dangerous thinking from my perspective, in the seat I'm sitting in."
