Mon, 14 Apr 2014 11:21:25 -0700

John Farrell admitted that Pedroia's recent wrist problem had been affecting him at the plate, though, so keep an eye on that.

Yankees | Not adding Kendrys Morales, Stephen Drew

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 11:04:48 -0700

The New York Yankees say there is "no way" they will sign free-agent 1B Kendrys Morales (Mariners) or SS Stephen Drew (Red Sox), even though they are dealing with a shortage of infielders early this season, according to a source familiar with the team's thinking. "Nobody's signing Drew or Morales, not at the money they're asking," said the source, who requested anonymity. Drew is reportedly looking for a multi-year deal worth $14 million a year, and Morales turned down "multiple contract offers" from the Seattle Mariners over the winter. The Yankees are likely to call up either INFs Russ Canzler or Scott Sizemore from Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Canzler is slightly more experienced at first base than Sizemore, who has never played the position in the majors.
