The Yankees left the Winter Meetings knowing more what they can’t do than what they can. They also lost a player in the Rule 5 Draft and may finally release Carl Pavano.
UPDATE ON ANDY PHILLIPS: Andy cleared waivers and was offered an outright assignment to Triple-A Scranton. He refused it and elected free agency.
Given that the Yankees have DFA’d him twice in the last nine months, can’t say I blame him. Obviously they don’t have much regard for him. Good luck to him finding another team.
