Teams have descended upon Las Vegas for the 2018 Winter Meetings. With that comes a barrage of rumors, news, and scoops. It’s one of the best times of the year to be a baseball fan. There exists no shortage of action.

Since it can sometimes be hard to keep up with the news, Pinstripe Alley is going to run a series of posts containing all the Yankees rumors over the next three days. It’s important to remember that these are rumors, and should be taken with a grain of salt. Teams and agents posture, selectively releasing information in a way that benefits them.

Rumors of the Day (December 9, 2018)

Yankees, Padres continue Sonny Gray dialogue

There’s been a lot of smoke with the Padres on a Gray trade. I wouldn’t be entirely surprised if he ends up there.

George Steinbrenner not elected into the Hall of Fame

The Boss didn’t make it in this year. Harold Baines and Lee Smith, though? Well okay then.

The Yankees have a budget on Manny Machado

Good news: The Yankees like Machado! Bad news: The Yankees appear to be playing frugal with top free agents again.

Yankees will meet with Bryce Harper

It would be negligent if the team didn’t meet with Harper, right? We’ll have more on this tomorrow as our free agent target post on him runs at 11 AM.

J.A. Happ may be nearing a decision

The Yankees pivoted to Happ after deciding not to sign Patrick Corbin. It sounds like they will have a clearer understanding of their rotation sooner rather than later.

Madison Bumgarner could be an option for the Yankees

This one seems like a long shot. If the Yankees miss out on Happ, I suppose they could call up San Francisco. Josh wrote about him recently and yikes, he may be about to crater.

Yankees “aren’t seriously” discussing J.T. Realmuto

The Realmuto trade rumors won’t end. Brian Cashman vehemently denied speculation that he would move Gary Sanchez. I buy Morosi’s report that these talks aren’t going anywhere.
