Comments From Brian Cashman

Chad Jennings of The LoHud Journal spoke to Yankees GM Brian Cashman today.  A few notes...

  • Cashman seeks a right-handed hitting outfielder to come off the bench on occasion.  Reed Johnson is the oft-mentioned name, though free agents such as Jonny Gomes and Rocco Baldelli are also available.
  • Cashman's comment that he doesn't need a left-handed bat for the outfield makes one wonder if Johnny Damon's time with the club is up.  Click here for more on that situation.
  • As far as backup infielder/catcher roles, Cashman seemed OK with internal options.  Still, the slight hedging in the GM's quotes led Jennings to wonder if Cashman will continue to monitor the market.
  • Bullpen help is not Cashman's focus - instead it's "non-roster invites and position player bench."  The Yankees have actually agreed to several minor league deals that have yet to be announced.
