D-Robs playing the Astros, Yankees are copying the Royals style, Jon Lester may be on the pinstriped radar, and Max Scherzer is not a risky investment.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

New York Post | George A. King: The Yankees' free agent closer may be using the Astros to negotiate a better deal somewhere else and the Houston organization is none too happy about that.

New York Post | Joel Sherman: With the strong interest in Andrew Miller as well as the rumored desire to bring back Robertson, the Yankees appear to be copying the Royals method of shortening games to six inning affairs.

NJ.com | Brendan Kuty: Jon Lester is one of the two best pitchers on the market by a fairly significant margin.  He has drawn interest from several teams, but reports are conflicting as to whether the Yankees are one of them.

ESPN New York | Wallace Matthews:  Some may consider Max Scherzer a risk for a the long term since he is a 30-year-old pitcher. The right-hander's age does not tell the whole tale as his award-winning arm has seen less work than the Yankees Japanese ace, Masahiro Tanaka.
