The latest from Ken Rosenthal...
- Rosenthal recommends the Yankees sign Ben Sheets and Juan Cruz, partially because they'd pay less of a cost in draft picks than any other team. One exec predicted Sheets would require a $6-8MM base with the potential to earn at least $14MM, and possibly a "lucrative club option." Despite Rosenthal's recommendation, the Yanks remain focused on Andy Pettitte (who is not weighing an offer from the Astros).
- Industry sources tell Rosenthal that the Red Sox have kept their payroll flexible in case mid and low-revenue teams need to dump contracts.
- The A's probably cannot afford both Nick Johnson and Orlando Cabrera, so they'll wait to see what happens with Cabrera before pursuing the trade with Washington.
- Prince Fielder filed for $8MM against the Brewers' $6MM; Rosenthal indicates the team feared he'd file higher.
- One chatter mentioned yesterday that Cory Sullivan and Jeremy Reed are the exact same player; one GM said the same to Rosenthal.
- Dennys Reyes has backed off his demand for Jeremy Affeldt money (two years, $8MM). Affeldt seemed like a bargain at the time.
- Expected to be in attendance at Kris Benson's upcoming throwing session: the Dodgers, Rangers, Padres, Rockies, and D'Backs. Looks like an NL West affair.
