Yup, Jake Arrieta is a free agent, and the Yankees would be fools not to at least give him a look.

Now look, that headline above may seem deceiving, but it's not. It's a question. I thought for sure the Yankees would be looking at a stud like Arrieta, but it doesn't appear to be a big name they want.

In fact, I suspect all their resources go toward Shohei Ohtani.  Anyway... this is what we found on the Arrieta-Yankee connection... if anything.

MLB Trade Rumors has this:

"The Cardinals, Nationals, Astros, Rangers, Phillies, Yankees, Angels, Mariners, Braves, Twins, and Dodgers could be in the mix depending on the price."

Alot of competition there.  Yanks may just bag it.  In fact, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe does his "Rumor Mic Drop" and doesn't even include the Yanks.

"Jake Arrieta has already received a lot of interest as arguably the top free agent pitcher, or at least co-No. 1 with Yu Darvish. The Brewers, Twins, Blue Jays, Rockies, and Rangers are known to have checked in with agent Scott Boras. It’s still not out of the realm of possibility that the Cubs attempt to re-sign him."

Gives me even more reason to suggest the Yanks are going another route.

More to come...
