Joel Sherman of the New York Post shares a few Yankees items and more from around baseball...
- The Yankees have a number of concerns about Yu Darvish and team officials "sounded pessimistic about making a significant posting bid, if they submit one at all." Given how the Yankees have been linked to Darvish for months, it's hard to believe they won't be bidding on the star pitcher, so this could well be some misdirection on the Bombers' part.
- The Yankees were interested in Mark Buehrle but wouldn't offer the veteran more than a two-year contract. This clearly wasn't going to get it done given the large market for Buehrle, who signed a four-year, $58MM pact with the Marlins.
- After "canvassing executives," Sherman finds the consensus is that Prince Fielder will sign with the Cubs. The belief is that Theo Epstein won't pass up the chance to acquire a slugger like Fielder given the lack of power hitters coming onto the market, and Epstein wants to make "a statement sign" in his first year in Chicago.
- Andruw Jones is likely to re-sign with the Yankees but the team will see if they can address starting pitching before taking care of their backups. Jones, for his part, plans to compete for a starting job this spring.
