FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: YANKS AWARDED WAIVER CLAIM ON DAVID ROBERTSON

The New York Yankees were awarded a waiver claim on Chicago White Sox closer David Robertson, which means the two sides have until Monday at 2:00 PM ET to complete a deal.  The White Sox put Robertson on revocable waivers in the hopes a team would claim the pricey closer after the team struggled badly in 2015 despite high expectations coming in. 

Analysis:  It is likely the Yankees just blocked Robertson from the Blue Jays who need a closer that is more dependable than youngster Roberto Osuna.  Don't look for any deal to get done although stranger things have happened.  It is telling though that the White Sox are already tossing aside players who were supposed to help them get back into contention this season.
