Yankees Not Likely To Replace A-Rod Through Trade

7:32pm: Marc Carig of the Newark Star-Ledger has another quote from Cashman on why the Yankees will not trade for a replacement.

"With the team not wanting add payroll, not wanting to hurt the farm system and stuff like that, and we're going to get Alex back, we're going to go with what we have in camp," Cashman said.

7:08pm: According to an AP article, Brian Cashman spoke about the possibility of finding a replacement for Alex Rodriguez through the trade market saying it is not likely.

"I'm not optimistic about doing anything," Cashman said before the Yankees played Cincinnati on Tuesday night. "I'm not going to be proactive in trying to do something. If something represents itself that makes sense, then maybe it will be different. I think our answer is here in camp."

Cashman added that he has not spoken to any other GM's about a third baseman but he has heard from the agents representing free agent third basemen.
