It’s nice to have our Associated Press buddy Mark Didtler down in Tampa. Here’s the latest from the AP, which reports that today’s Yankees organizational meetings lasted six and a half hours and will be concluded after just one day.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman and other high-ranking team officials have gathered in Florida to address offseason plans.
A meeting on Wednesday lasted around 6 1/2 hours 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.
There were no announcements made after Wednesday’s session, which ended around 4:30 p.m. Although originally scheduled to be a two-day affair, the New York-based officials were returning home after completing their work on Wednesday.
