It’s “doubtful” that the Yankees will get Elvis Andrus

Earlier this week it was reported that the Yankees were “intrigued” by Elvis Andrus. They will likely continue to be intrigued from afar, because they ain’t gonna get him, says Andrew Marchand:

Andrus is only 26, but he is owed $120 million over the next eight seasons and his production has declined in each of the last two years. Seems like no one you really want to give up much of anything for, and I’d assume the Rangers aren’t too interested in getting nothing in return for the guy they run out to shortstop 150+ times a year.

The Red Sox announced that Jerry Narron will be the team’s bench coach this year.

Narron will join interim manager Ron Roenicke in the dugout to lead Boston’s coaching staff. The two previously worked together in the same roles from 2011 to 2015, during Roenicke’s tenure as manager of the Milwaukee Brewers. Narron most recently spent the last three years as the bench coach for the Diamondbacks. He also has managerial experience with both the Rangers (2001-2002) and Reds (2005-2007).

The Mets reportedly considered hiring Narron this winter as a possible bench coach for then-manager Carlos Beltran, before ultimately going with Hensley Meulens.
