Yankees not ruling out bringing back David Robertson, but are ready to move on

Jack Curry of the YES Network reports that while Yankees GM Brian Cashman hasn’t ruled out the possibility of bringing back 2014 closer David Robertson, he thinks his club has enough bullpen depth to move forward as presently constructed. The Yankees signed Andrew Miller to a four-year, $36 million contract earlier today which pairs him up at the back end of the bullpen with Dellin Betances.

Robertson is reportedly seeking “Jonathan Papelbon money” — somewhere in the area of four years and $50 million. The Yankees would obviously be interested if he reduced his asking price. There hasn’t been a lot of buzz around the right-hander aside from the Yankees, as the Astros and Blue Jays are the two most serious teams linked to him thus far.
