It was another calm day at the 2015 GM Meetings yesterday. The biggest piece of Yankee hot stove news actually came out super early this morning, so that post will wait. Here's the day 2 recap to get the morning started: - Via Erik Boland, Cash confirmed that the Yankees are interested in bringing Chris Young back. "Would we like to have him back? Of course. You couldn’t ask him to be any better" Cash said. Young was a lefty masher on a cheap 1-year deal this past season. Have to think he's looking to cash in on that and his market development will determine how seriously the Yankees pursue him.
- FWIW, Bob Nightengale reported the Red Sox as one of the other teams interested in Young.
- Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees are one of several teams that have checked in on Jurickson Profar's availability. Profar, the top prospect in baseball as recently as 2013, has missed the past 2 seasons with shoulder injuries for the Rangers but is playing in the AZFL right now to make up for lost time. According to Sherman, the Yankees are interested in Profar as a second baseman, but right now the Rangers are not looking to deal him.
- If you were hopeful that the Yanks could pull off a killer trade for one of the Mets' big young arms, Cash rained on that parade. yesterday, saying "that will never happen" when asked about the possibility. (Via Mike Puma)
- Yanks got shut out in the Gold Glove department last night when the AL and NL award winners were announced. Yoenis Cespedes beat out Brett Gardner in left field, Eric Hosmer went over Mark Teixeira at first base, and Alcides Escobar topped Didi Gregorius at short. I have to think Teix would have won if he wouldn't have gotten hurt. He was spectacular at first this year.
