Yankees non-tender Jayson Nix, David Adams, Matt Daley

Mike Stobe

The non-tender deadline has proven to be a busy day for the Yankees, as they have already traded Chris Stewart, who was expected to be cut, to the Pirates for a player to be named later. With only hours before the deadline, Brian Cashman has said that the team will non-tender Jayson Nix, another likely candidate, Matt Daley, a not surprising cut, and, in a shocking turn of events, David Adams.

It's completely possible that the Yankees could re-sign Nix to a minor league deal and keep him as depth insurance, though no one will likely miss Daley. Adams, though surprising, likely didn't impress many people in the Yankees' front office. It's certainly possible they released him in order to clear a spot on the 40-man roster and then they could re-sign him, like they did earlier in the year.

Cutting those three leaves the Yankees' 40-man roster at 36 (37 once the Brian McCann deal is official), leaving them with four spots to either sign free agents or pick minor leaguers is the upcoming Rule 5 Draft. It also means that Francisco Cervelli and David Huff will be tendered a contract.
