FANTASY BASEBALL WINTER MEETINGS REPORT: YANKEES NOW DIVING IN FULLY ON MAX SCHERZER

By Michael Wong

San Diego, CA.--The New York Yankees team brass have met and discussed the state of the team after losing closer David Robertson to the Chicago White Sox, it was determined that they need to go heavy on the starting pitching left available given the uncertainty of their rotation.  A team source indicated that the club will dive in fully on the Max Scherzer sweepstakes which will start to take shape now that Jon Lester has signed.  In addition, the team will check in with James Shields as a fallback option and also try to re-sign Brandon McCarthy.

-Speaking of Shields, he has met with the Texas Rangers so far but other than that things are relatively quiet.

-The Jimmy Rollins to the Los Angeles Dodgers rumors are fully engulfed and we hear that it pretty much is a done deal.  Still there is uncertainty over what will be going back to the Phillies and whether or not a third team is involved.

-Speaking of the Phillies, they dealt reliever Antonio Batardo to the Pittsburgh Pirates.  This is likely the first of many deals involving the Phillies who want to tear it all down. 

-The Miami Marlins are mulling a request from the Dodgers of top pitching prospect Andrew Heaney for Dee Gordon.  The Marlins will likely want more coming back if they would move Heaney.

-Edinson Volquez will have a new team this year as his agent indicated to me. 

-Still no official word yet on the Wade Miley situation.  The Boston Red Sox seemed on the verge of acquiring him but nothing is confirmed yet.  The Marlins are not involved anymore as well. 

-The Dillon Gee talks are heating up as the Colorado Rockies are now a team that is involved.  The Texas Rangers seemed to have cooled and the Seattle Mariners are moving away from it as well.

-Speaking of the Mets, they like Phil Coke and were involved somewhat for Bastardo until he was dealt.
