Chien Ming-Wang was non-tendered, but the Yanks would like to bring him back:
"There's no doubt that we had to make a tough decision," general manager Brian Cashman said. "We are still hopeful that our relationship can continue, but those decisions are yet to be made."
- Contracts were tendered to Melky Cabrera, Chad Gaudin and Sergio Mitre.
- The Yanks and Johnny Damon are negotiating, but Cashman wants an answer within two weeks. Hideki Matsui would reportedly accept a one-year deal.
- Curtis Granderson is a leader on and off the field. He traveled to China and South Africa to teach baseball clinics, and started a charity while still in the minors.
- The Yankees are currently the third favorite team to land Roy Halladay. The Angels and Phillies are first and second.
- Fox Sports says the Yankees were the top 'winner' at the winter meetings.
- Aroldis Chapman will throw a side session in Houston on Tuesday. The Yanks, Red Sox and Angels will be among the teams watching the Cuban defector.
