If you’re hoping for big news out of the Yankees, keep hoping. Brian Cashman said the Yankees are discussing some minor trades but isn’t overly optimistic that something will get done before he leaves here tomorrow.
Cashman talked at length about his in-house options for the bullpen. The Yankees seem pretty determined to give guys like Alan Horne, Jeff Marquez, Kei Igawa, Jeff Karstens and Steven White a chance to make the team as relievers.
They are still hoping to sign Luis Vizcaino.
Cashman talked about Jonathan Albaladejo. He said their scouts have been watching him since last year and saw him pitch recently in the Venezuelan League. Big guy, good slider. Decent fastball. He has three options left.
It’s Alba-la-DAY-ho, by the way.
Sorry about the tech issues before. You should be able to post now.
