Around the Empire: Yankees news - 11/7/18

Yankees could sign Bryce Harper and move him to first base; We might see an Andrew Miller reunion; Brian Cashman indicated that the team doesn’t prefer to go over the luxury tax threshold in 2019; Yankees didn’t win any gold gloves.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Colorado Rockies Russell Lansford-USA TODAY Sports | Mike Rosenstein: We’ve heard that the Yankees are out on Bryce Harper over the past few days, especially after they inked Brett Gardner to a new deal. There don’t appear to be any free outfield spots, but they still could go after Harper and move him to first base. It could be a huge gamble to see how he’d adapt there, but it would fill a current need.

SNY | John Healy: Just because the Yankees stayed under the luxury tax threshold in 2018 doesn’t mean that they will go over it in 2019. At the GM Meetings yesterday, Brian Cashman said that it wouldn’t be their “preference” to go over the threshold next year, and stated that they still have a “behemoth-type payroll.” If that’s the case, we might be in for a quiet offseason.

NY Post | Joel Sherman: Could we see the return of Andrew Miller to the Bombers’ bullpen? 2018 did not treat him well, as he spent the better part of three months on the disabled list. However, he’s been one of the best relievers in baseball when healthy. The team could re-sign Miller and pass one handing out contracts to David Robertson or Zach Britton. | Manny Randhawa: In case you missed it the other day, Gold Glove winners were announced Sunday night. If you’re guessing you would have heard by now if the Yankees had won, you’re right. Masahiro Tanaka, Brett Gardner, and Aaron Judge were all nominated for the award, but they all finished as runners-up.
