Wednesday night notes and links: Schierholtz has Yankees offer

Tweet [1]

A few late notes and links from here in Nashville…

• Joel Sherman reports that the Yankees have made a offer to platoon outfielder Nate Schierholtz. [2]He would have to be paired with another outfielder, but he could fill half of the right field opening.

• No surprise that Scott Boras told a mob of reporters today that the Yankees have not had any extension conversations with Robinson Cano. [3]

• Dan Barbarisi talked to someone close to Eric Chavez who said the desire to play close to home was a large part of Chavez’s decision [4]to sign with the Diamondbacks. Chavez lives in Arizona.

• Back in New York, Mariano Rivera refused to say whether he’d like to play beyond 2013. But he did promise an announcement before the start of next season. [5] “I’ll tell you in spring training,” he said. “Spring training is going to be the date.”

• Speaking of back in New York, at a charity appearance tonight, Derek Jeter once again said he expects to be ready for Opening Day. [6]
