The Yankees sign Brian Cashman to a three-year deal

18 Comments

We were told that negotiations between Brian Cashman and the Yankees over a new contract were going smoothly. Must have, because the Yankees just announced that Cashman has agreed to a new three-year deal.  No details have been announced yet, but you can probably assume a bit of a raise was involved and all will proceed as all has proceeded to date.

Quite the drama-free offseason so far for the Yankees, eh?  Sign Sabathia, extend Cashman, exercise the options on Cano and Swisher. All before noon on Novmember 1st.

Are we gonna get any drama from the Bronx this winter? God, I hope so. Not sure what I’ll do without it.  Somebody go poke Hank Steinbrenner with a stick or something. Maybe something neat will happen.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports reports that the Angels have signed 1B/DH Justin Bour to a contract, pending a physical. The Phillies non-tendered Bour last month.

Bour, 30, spent the 2018 season with the Marlins and Phillies, hitting an aggregate .227/.341/.404 with 20 home runs and 59 RBI in 501 plate appearances.

Bour will likely share first base with Albert Pujols, who is coming off of knee and elbow surgeries. Bour could handle right-handers while the 38-year-old Pujols faces lefties.
