Gammons’ Latest: Yankees, Tigers, Chapman

ESPN's Peter Gammons touched on a bunch of hot stove topics in his latest blog post, so let's round everything up…

  • Phil Hughes and Joba Chamberlain will come to Spring Training as starters, but the Yankees haven't ruled out a run at John Lackey, Ben Sheets, or another starter. The feeling inside the organization is that the payroll will be scaled back a bit.
  • One Tigers source emphatically told Gammons "there will be no fire sale. [Owner] Mike Ilitch wouldn't allow it."
  • At least one GM says that switching agents raises some character questions about Aroldis Chapman.
  • Conor Jackson's stint in winter ball convinced the team he's healthy, and he'll be in their first base/left field mix next year. Jackson made our list of non-tender candidates.
