The beat writers are scheduled to meet with Brian Cashman in five minutes. I’ll be back soon with updates from that session, but until then…
The Daily News is contradicting earlier reports that Andy Pettitte has turned down an offer from the Yankees. The News writes that the Yankees will make their first offer at some point today. A source told the paper, “They don’t intend to low-ball him.”
Speaking of The Daily News, two good items from Mark Feinsand’s blog. 1. Feinsand is hearing the player to be named later in the Brian Bruney trade might be the Nationals first overall pick in the Rule 5 draft. 2. Chien-Ming Wang’s agent says Wang will be ready to pitch by May 1.
One last item, Marc Carig is reporting that the Yankees will meet with Mark DeRosa’s agent.
