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:
I’ve been told it is very doubtful on Yanks making a trade for Andrus.

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.
