Just checked in with the Yankees front office. As you might suspect, they still haven’t heard anything from Cliff Lee. Looks like this thing is, in fact, going to linger through the entire weekend.
Gordon Edes in Boston reports that there’s also no news on Russell Martin.
Two items of marginal Yankees interest.
1. The Marlins are reportedly working toward signing Randy Choate. Only interesting because Choate seems to fit the Yankees needs as well.
2. The Rockies have signed Eric Duncan to a minor league deal. The former Yankees first-round pick was widely regarded as one of the hardest workers in the system, but he topped out at Triple-A before becoming a utility type in the Braves system last year. Can’t say this strongly enough: He’s a terrific guy, does everything the right way, and I’d love to see the upper-level numbers finally take the next step. Best of luck to him.
