No sign of Brian Cashman. But two people from other teams said they believe the Yankees did meet with CC Sabathia and his agent today. The Brewers will have their meeting tomorrow. It’s unclear whether Sabathia himself will attend or send Greg Genske, his agent.
Meanwhile only two free agents accepted arbitration: Reds reliever David Weathers and Angels reliever Darren Oliver.
The Mets met with Frankie Rodriguez today and made an offer. A deal will be presented to Brian Fuentes tomorrow and perhaps Kerry Wood. The Mets could make their proposals and tell the players that the first phone call gets it. Omar Minaya has done that before.
The Tigers have obtained Gerald Laird from the Rangers for a pitching prospect.
Just a reminder: We’ll have a live video chat on Tuesday at 11 a.m. from the Meetings.
