Nothing necessarily new here, but this is the latest from the AP down in Tampa.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and other high-ranking team officials have gathered in Florida to address offseason plans.

The first day of meetings started Wednesday at George Steinbrenner Field, the Yankees’ spring training home.

Items on the Yankees’ agenda include whether to pick up right fielder Nick Swisher’s $10.25 million option and formulating potential plans for ace CC Sabathia, who can opt out of his 7-year, $161 million contract after the World Series. Cashman’s current contract expires at the end of the month, as well.

Others involved in the meetings included managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner, team president Randy Levine, special adviser Gene Michael, senior director of pro personnel Billy Eppler, assistant general manager Jean Afterman and senior vice president of baseball operations Mark Newman.
