Around the Empire: Yankees news - 1/10/18

More Gerrit Cole to Astros trade rumors; Yankees seemingly out on Cole; or not, according to Harper; Yankees getting calls on Clint Frazier and Miguel Andujar; Yankees announce details of expanded netting plans

Pittsburgh Pirates v Detroit Tigers
Houston, you say? Cool. Wait what? Oh, okay. I’ll just keep waiting. | Jon Morosi: There was a bit of excitement yesterday morning. For about an hour, it seemed like the bleak doldrums of this offseason had finally ended. Morosi reported that a trade between the Houston Astros and Pittsburgh Pirates for Gerrit Cole was “imminent.” It later fizzled out. No deal was done. It also meant the Yankees were still in the running for Cole. OR DID IT???

CBS New York: According to an industry source, the Yankees are seemingly done trying to acquire Cole. Are they really though? I’m sure a lot of people will be happy that they are not trading Clint Frazier and other prospects for him. Others still want another quality starter. As a link dumper in an offseason filled with despair and Arby’s, I need Cole rumors to do my job. You know, unless you wanna give me something else here, Cashman. In any case, I doubt this will be the end of Yankees-Cole rumors.

New York Daily News | John Harper: Oh come the bunt on, Harper. You could at least wait a day. Lord knows you were wrong about it just recently. | Bryan Hoch: Clint Frazier was one of the prospects rumored to be offered in that Cole trade. Cashman has definitely received calls on Frazier, as well as Miguel Andujar. The Yankees have quite a bit of outfield depth right now, which is why Cashman can comfortably shop Frazier. On the flip side, Andujar could wind up the starting third baseman this season. Either way, there is interest in them and the Yankees have said they’re not done making moves this offseason.

YES Network: Finally, the Yankees unveiled details of the expanded netting plans that they originally announced in October. There’s not much for me to add here. It’s all after the link. Click it. NOW!
