SNY | Danny Abriano: Major League Baseball’s General Manager Meetings get underway tomorrow in Scottsdale, Arizona. These meetings traditionally don’t generate the same type of buzz as the Winter Meetings, but expect a fair dose of hot stove action. That’s inevitable when all 30 GMs end up in one place. Last year the Yankees signed CC Sabathia during this conference, and they learned that James Paxton was available. Plus the Aaron Hicks trade went down here in 2015. If nothing else, the seeds for the rest of the offseason get planted at these meetings.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: Yankees fans have dreamed of landing Francisco Lindor ever since rumors emerged suggesting the Indians would entertain offers on the start shortstop. If Lindor doesn’t find his way to the Bronx, Sherman has some left-handed hitting alternatives. Re-signing Didi Gregorius ranks among the top options, but other candidates like Jonathan Villar and Freddy Galvis are mentioned here. | Brendan Kuty: Mike Tauchman’s breakthrough remains one of the most exciting stories behind the 2019 Yankees. The 28-year-old outfielder hit .277/.361/.504 with 13 home runs (127 wRC+) over 296 plate appearances, while playing sparkling defense across all three outfield positions. Kuty wonders about his future, though, if he will be a bench player, the team’s starting center fielder, or trade bait.
