New York Post | George A. King III: The Yankees want to add two relievers this offseason. Two of the top free agent relief pitchers, David Robertson and Zach Britton, happen to have pitched for the Bombers last year. While it makes a ton of sense to bring them back, they have competition. The Red Sox like both Robertson and Britton, so it would behoove Brian Cashman and company to get a move on it. D-Rob pitching for Boston would make Kunj apoplectic.

NJ.com | Joe Giglio: Patrick Corbin’s free agency has become the biggest priority for the Yankees. After all, the club recently gave the left-hander a tour of Yankee Stadium. Not all, however, are thrilled with this development. Giglio outlines some reasons to be concerned with Corbin, including his age, declining velocity, and reliance on one pitch. These are all points to be considered, but still, give me Corbin.

SNY | Andy Martino: Speaking of Corbin, it sounds like he’s going to make up his mind soon. Martino reports that the southpaw should have a decision within a week. The same goes for J.A. Happ. Expect the Yankees’ rotation to get into focus rather quickly.
