A lot is going on over night tonight. It is being reported by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that the Yankees are considering bringing in Michael Young to man 3rd base and Mark Reynolds is another guy they are considering bringing back as well. Tough to say if the Yanks want them both, or just 1 or the other... or is Heyman just trying to top Ken Rosenthal's Brian Roberts rumor, or what?
As you know, Young was a guy on the Yankees radar at the trade deadline, but then that seemed to die and then he went to the Dodgers. Anyway, here is Heyman's tweet on both he and Reynolds:
in addition to mark reynolds, also on #yankees radar are michael young and brian robertsThis is very interesting considering both can play 3rd and we really don't know what the future lies for Alex Rodriguez right now.

Now, I am of the belief that if the Yankees can wait as long as they can to fill the 3rd base position, they can roll the dice and if ARod is suspended and guys like Young and Reynolds are gone, they can just stick Eduardo Nunez in the spot until they figure out what to do next. Otherwise, I really don't know how they can keep signing everyone and still have "big" money left over to hopefully sign a pitcher like Masahiro Tanaka. That's if everything works out with him and the posting situation.
Anyway... it's another interesting rumor. We'll have to wait and see.
