Listen: Brian Cashman, Manny Machado, Bryce Harper discussed on CBS Sports Radio
"Of your responses here pronto, but if you're wondering about the New York Yankees with these winter meetings going on in Las Vegas, general manager Brian Kelly. Cashman almost appeared exasperated that the question is even coming up again. According to Cashman that outfield that the Yankees have right now. It's full they've got an app outfielders. They've got morale builders than they need. And so instead of pursuing Bryce Harper. Well, then they're going after other free agents who can plug holes where they actually have need. Brian Cashman admits that the talks around Manny Machado. Well, those those are a lot more active because of DeeDee Grigory is injury. He says they are very much in the conversation. For many who is a free agent. Infielder. So I'll read you this quote from Cashman, we were definitely focused in the marketplace on those areas of need meaning shortstop, and he obviously is available and solves that area of need. So not going to deny we've had a conversation or two, and then Cashman goes on to admit that he and Machado's agent even spoke before the winter meetings now as for Machado himself. He's going to visit teams very soon. That are interested in having him sign as a free agent. So you likely aren't going to spend the money on both Machado and on Bryce Harper. Those are the two prizes. Right. And again, they've got a logjam at outfield. But what if Harper were to change position? It's an interesting question one that came up with the general manager, Brian Cashman, we covered this earlier in the wintertime people asked."
