No real surprise here, but Brian Cashman said he had “a lot” of conversations with different teams. Some ideas gained traction, others were shot down immediately.
“It wasn’t a deep market at all, is one (reason for not making a deal),” Cashman said. “Two, what I was offering, obviously wasn’t good enough for the opposing teams. What the teams were suggesting to me, wasn’t good enough from my perspective.”
Cashman also said that Alex Rodriguez is still on schedule to play in a simulated game in Tampa tomorrow, but he wouldn’t give details of the rehab plan beyond that. He also said the Biogenesis situation had no impact on his trade deadline approach.
Curtis Granderson is expected to be activated on Friday.
