New York Post | Ken Davidoff: While rappelling down the Landmark Building in Stamford, Connecticut alongside Yankees manager Aaron Boone and Fox News Channel’s Will Cain, Bombers’ general manager Brian Cashman said he would like his skipper to remain in charge of the roster for a long time. “I’ve had three managers. Ten (years) with Joe Torre, ten with (Joe) Girardi and hopefully ten more with Boone,” he stated. | Randy Miller: YES Network insider Jack Curry offered an update on the DJ LeMahieu contract negotiations while speaking on Yankees Hot Stove. An executive told him things would be very slow this offseason, sort of like a “cold stove,” which has been evident so far. “But here’s the ray of sunshine... the Yankees and DJ LeMahieu have had conversations. They have been positive conversations.” He explained that the Yankees put a number out there about what they think the player is worth, much like they did with Gerrit Cole last year, and ended up going a little higher. A similar scenario could present itself with LeMahieu, who’s said to be seeking $100 million on a multi-year deal.

Newsday | Tim Healey: The Yankees announced last night that Gio Urshela underwent surgery to remove a bone chip from his right elbow. Much like Didi Gregorius’ Tommy John two years ago and James Paxton’s back ailment last year, the Yankees have surprised us with another out of nowhere operation. Urshela projects to sit for three months, putting his return around spring training.
