There have been a lot of risk-reward pitchers in this free agent market, and the Yankees have been linked to several of them — from veterans Freddy Garcia and Kevin Millwood to relatively young guys like Jeff Francis and Jeremy Bonderman.
Late last night, though, Jack Curry reported that it seems safe to take one of those names off the list.
On his Twitter account, Curry reported that the Yankees are still looking at rotation options, “but don’t expect them to sign Jeremy Bonderman.”
Garcia, Millwood and Francis are still out there, but even this part of the market is starting to dwindle. It’s has never been a good starting pitching market, and it’s not getting any better.
