What You Need to Know: August's Surprising Power Performances

And why a team of old position players can be a pretty big problem.

You have to hand it to the Yankees. Fresh off a 2013 season in which they fielded baseball’s oldest collection of position players—and, in perhaps not entirely unrelated news, either led the league or ranked second in games and salary lost to injury and percentage of payroll lost—they’ve spent the offseason growing even grayer.

2013 Yankees Age and Injuries (MLB rank in parentheses)

Rumor Roundup: Third Base Buzz

Daniel Rathman

The Yankees talk to the Padres about another infielder, and Mark Reynolds receives interest.

Yankees chatting with Padres in search of infield depth
General managers Brian Cashman and Josh Byrnes have already combined for one trade this offseason: a November swap that sent minor-league reliever Ben Paullus to San Diego for minor-league infielder Dean Anna, who was deemed expendable when the Padres faced a 40-man roster crunch.

Fantasy Team Preview: New York Yankees

2

Craig Goldstein

Robinson Cano is gone, but the Yankees have added intriguing fantasy options in Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann.

This preview’s first incarnation was dramatically different from its second, which in turn has been torn down and rebuilt from the ground up. The original draft came after the signing of Brian McCann, but before those of Jacoby Ellsbury and Kelly Johnson. Thanks to a change in schedule though, we’re coming back to you after the departure of Robinson Cano and with the additions of Carlos Beltran and Hiroki Kuroda. In this third iteration, there is plenty of fantasy goodness to be had.

While a greatly diminished Yankee lineup managed to produce a valiant playoff run, these recent reinforcements should make them more formidable going forward. There are still flaws with the Yankees, notably in the rotation, at second base and at third base, but these new signings will make plenty of noise (and fantasy value) all the same. While there will be a Cano-sized hole in this lineup, this will still be an explosive offense thanks to the additions of Beltran, Ellsbury, and McCann. Health is going to be the key ingredient to the Yankees season, as they continue to approach talent like a connoisseur approaches cheese or wine, where older is better.

Rumor Roundup: Beltran to the Bronx?

9

Daniel Rathman

Carlos Beltran is the Yankees' top target, and the Blue Jays are eyeing available starters, including Jeff Samardzija.

Carlos Beltran is Yankees’ top target
General manager Brian Cashman nabbed his first free agent last week, when Brian McCann agreed to a five-year, $85 million hitch with the Yankees that includes a vesting option for the 2019 season. If Cashman has his way, Beltran will soon join McCann in the Bronx.
