Winter Meetings Day 3 Wrap-Up

The Yankees kept moving and shaking after the Castro deal on Tuesday, trading another piece of their Major League bullpen away yesterday to add some upper-level rotation depth.  Today is the final day of the meetings and the Rule 5 Draft is later, so maybe we'll see another move.  Here's a quick update on where we stand after yesterday. - The aforementioned trade was the Justin Wilson one.  The Yankees got right-handed starters Luis Cessa and Chad Green in return, and both figure to start next season in the Triple-A rotation.  Cessa sounds like the better prospect from what I've read, but neither is a stud.  Wilson figures to be replaced internally by someone from the Lindgren-Pazos-Webb triumvirate.  Just kidding, it's going to be Lindgren.

- Via Jon Heyman, Brett Gardner is "still out there" in trade talks, although nothing is close for now.  I think Gardner stays.

- Via Joel Sherman, the Yanks are still shopping Andrew Miller around to the D'backs and Astros.  Houston traded for Ken Giles yesterday and it doesn't sound like anything is going to happen with AZ, so Miller probably stays now too.  I can't see Cash trading him and Wilson.

- Oh and in case you were wondering, Cash confirmed that the Yankees are still poor as $h*t and crippled by their payroll restrictions with this winner of a quote to Pete Caldera: 'It's accurate to say flexibility is limited currently because we're committed to a lot.''

- Via Bryan Hoch, the Yankees expect to lose somebody in the Rule 5 Draft and are also considering taking someone.  Jake Cave is the popular name I've seen suggested as the player they'll lose.
