Quick postgame notes: Adams, Teixiera, Jeter

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Mar 29, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

There’s a chance the Yankees will announce some roster decisions now that today’s game has ended. For now, here are a few quick things…

• Turns out, Brian Cashman and Co. knew what they were doing with the David Adams decision. Adams became a free agent today and re-signed a minor league deal with the Yankees. I was as stunned as anyone when the Yankees announced the release — in fact, I felt certain someone had misspoken — but it worked out.

• Mark Teixeira said yesterday that he will visit the Yankees team doctor on Monday, and he’s hoping the brace will come off his right wrist soon after, maybe even immediately after. Today, Teixeira was going through one-handed fielding drills at first base, and he’s hoping to take two-handed swings in two weeks. He’s been swinging with only his left hand since Sunday. Teixeira believes he could be in a game as early as May 1.

• No real news here, but Cashman said once again that Derek Jeter will not do any baseball activity until Monday. The chances of Jeter actually being activated on April 6 seem incredibly slim.

• In case you missed it, the Yankees beat the Nationals 4-2. Andy Pettitte allowed two runs — one earned — through six inning, and Joba Chamberlain, Dave Robertson and Mariano Rivera closed the game with a scoreless inning each. Robinson Cano and Vernon Wells each doubled. Kevin Youkilis hit his sixth spring homer.

    Pretty good news day.

    Andy threw the ball really well today, he’s going to have another good season if he stays healthy.

    I know this won’t happen but it would be really good if the next time the Yankees make a move that seems strange that people give it a day before declaring them unconditional idiots-they knew exactly what they were doing with Adams, didn’t they?

    Was a gamble unless they had a pre-greement with him. ;)

    Doreen, don’t confuse them with the most likely scenario..

    It doesnt matter if they had a pre-greement with him if someone claims him on waivers and he decides a 40 man roster spot and all the benefits (like pay) that go with it is better. I’m sure they agreed that if he cleared waivers he would re-sign, but putting him out on waivers is still a gamble.

    I’m guessing Adams had some feeling of loyalty to the Yanks given how much time and money they have spent on his health

  12. MG March 29th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

    I only saw one Wells AB today (the single to center) but he’s swinging the bat pretty well, the Yankees must have gotten a very good scouting report on him before making that deal.

    If he has a bounceback year (or even a couple of months) it’s really going to fill in a big hole for them, both in left field until Granderson gets back and then possibly as the DH later on.

    It’s fashionable to bash the Yankees right now but the pitching is so solid that they are going to be in the hunt for the division and playoffs.

    Maybe Cashman is a better GM than many on this board give him credit for. He has much better information than we do. I think that is a major advantage the Yankees have. Lots of good information. I suspect the Adams resigning was extemely high probabilit based on information he has and we don’t.

    Trish are you doing the Yankees win contest again this year? If you are put me down for 94 wins.

    So glad I was proven right on the Adams deal. Who knows how much Adams re-signed for and what other benefits he’s been promised. Let’s assume his agent got him a good deal for forgoing the potential 40 man roster status.
