MLB Winter Meetings 2013: Day Three open thread

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The Yankees were quiet once again on Day Two of the Winter Meetings in Orlando, as was most of baseball. The Angels, Diamondbacks, and White Sox pulled off a three-way trade that sent Mark Trumbo to Arizona and Tyler Skaggs to Anaheim. The Reds say they will not trade Homer Bailey, who was rumored to be a potential target for the Yankees. Brian Cashman and company inquired about various players to fill the third base vacancy due to Alex Rodriguez's presumed suspension. The team also continues to look for second base help and starting pitching.

The president of Masahiro Tanaka's Japanese team was in Orlando yesterday, but told media that no decision had been made on whether or not Tanaka would be posted. The Eagles are rumored to be upset by the new posting system put in place by MLB and NPB that limit's the posting bid on a Japanese player to $20 million, virtually making the player a free agent and leaving more of the money spent by MLB teams to the player themselves in the form of a big contract instead of their former team.

Brett Anderson was traded by the Oakland Athletics to the Colorado Rockies for Drew Pomeranz and a High-A pitcher. The Yankees were previously linked to Anderson, but those talks seemingly didn't go anywhere beyond those rumors. New York's 40-man roster stands at 40 players already, so they will not be able to pick up any players in the Rule 5 draft this week. There are a few players within the organization who were left unprotected that could be claimed by other teams.

We'll be here all day if there is any pressing Yankees news or rumors. Feel free to discuss any non-Yankees news to come out of the meetings here. Let's hope it's more interesting than the last two days have been.
