Yankee Updates From West Coast 12/10/14

With a nod to Elton John's Songs From The West Coast album, here are your updates from the west coast starring Brian Cashman who spoke with reporters in San Diego. Some highlights:

  • Cashman said he talked to the Dodgers about Dee Gordon and to the Phillies about Jimmy Rollins, but neither conversation went very far.
  • Added that the Phillies said they would want more than Yanks would be willing to pay.
  • Told reporters that the Yankees trainer Matt Krause met with Alex Rodriguez today and said the assessment was good.
  • He has checked in with Hiroki Kuroda's agent but has no idea what Kuroda's decision will be.
  • He said the Yankees are unlikely to take anyone in tomorrow's Rule 5 draft and that they'd rather keep the roster spots open.
