Quick Hits

  • This Is Happening: Vernon Wells has already left camp to fly to Tampa and will likely take his physical soon.
  • Money: The Yankees will likely be taking on $13M over the next two seasons of the $42M Wells is still owed.
  • Approval: For those still hoping this deal doesn't happen, Bud Selig still has to approve of the transference of money in the deal.
  • Bigger Trade?: If Wells has publicly acknowledged the deal, but the final details have yet to be released, it could mean that this is merely part of a bigger transaction.
  • More to Come?: The Yankees might not be done after adding Wells to the team. They could still be looking for an upgrade at first base over Juan Rivera.
  • Captain DL: Opening Day is coming quicker than Jeter's ankle can heal. At this point it's believed that he will be ready to go by April 6.
  • Lowdown: NoMaas wonders why Vidal Nuno, who seems to have a shot at making the team, was suddenly released by the Cleveland Indians in 2010.
  • Role: Francisco Rondon is back with Trenton and could be a starter.
  • Back: Slade Heathcott has been working on his base running, which is good to see after he was sidelined with patellar tendinitis.
