McDaniel hears that the Yankees will spend an additional $1MM on a shortstop and a pitcher. Damian Arredondo is expected to be the shortstop and some expect the pitcher to be Jose Osuna. If he signs, Arredondo would likely receive about $850k of the $1MM the Yankees are expected to spend on the pair of players.
As expected, the Yankees have signed Dominican catcher Gary Sanchez, according to Kiley McDaniel of Baseball Prospectus. Sanchez will receive a bonus of "basically $3MM," though the details aren't yet clear.
[According to MLBTradeRumors.com] We already talked on this cite about the Cuban pitcher defecting. This could be the bolt to our system we needed. I am excited about having a farm system again. What do you all think about the moves the Yankees have done? Enough? Or would you have rather seen Sano signed? I am a Pirates fan too, so I am glad they will (hopefully!) get him, but I like what the Yanks got.
