BLEEDING YANKEE BLUE PLAYER TRACKER #11
Andy Pettitte: If you ask Joel Sherman of the New York Post, it seems as though Andy Pettitte will come back to the Yankees. Read HERE. Let's also warn that when family is involved, you just really don't know what's in a player's head. I can tell you this though and I've said it all along, Andy has unfinished business and I believe in my gut that Andy comes back for another season. I also think 2013 will be his last.
Stephen Drew: What's an offseason without the Yankees and the Red Sox fighting over the same player? According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.com, HERE, they are both checking in on free agent Stephen Drew, a shortstop. It makes sense for the Yankees to do this, because who truly knows if Derek Jeter will be 100% by Opening day and they clearly don't have much faith in Eduardo Nunez and his fielding ability.
Kyle Lohse: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe says the Red Sox have called about the availability of Lohse. Boston would like to add a starter. Read about it HERE.
Ryan Raburn: Raburn was released by the Tigers yesterday. Joe Frisaro of MLB.com says Raburn could be a good option for the Miami Marlins HERE. The tweet about the release is HERE.
Chone Figgins: Figgins was designated for assignment yesterday by the Seattle Mariners. Read HERE. The dude is 34 years old and I just remember he was one of the hottest players with the Angels. Then he signed that contract in Seattle and just died. Look, Figgins is a utility guy and as a part time bench player, maybe he could be an interesting fit for the Yanks. Of course the price has got to be right.
Robert Andino: Finally, Andino was traded to the Seattle Mariners for Trayvon Robinson, read HERE. Andino was a great player in the American League East and handled the Yankees and Red Sox with ease. For me, I like this becasue it gets him out of here, but truth be told I wish Andino luck in Seattle.
