With the New York Yankees having a lot of potential money coming off their payroll within the next couple of weeks, the team has some options as far as where to go in free agency.
Robinson Cano is the priority and for argument's sake, Curtis Granderson could be the second one, especially of the Yankees own players who are free agents. But they have a desperate hole at catcher and the team has no obvious choice as far as who should be the everyday catcher; so the team is looking at the free agent market this winter to pick up potentially one of the biggest names out there.
Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York reported on Thursday that the Yankees have their sights set on trying to land Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann, who will be a free agent once the season is officially over.
"There is a misnomer about the $189 million threshold. There is an idea that the Yankees will not have money to spend this winter. But they will — and they could accomplish a lot while remaining under Hal Steinbrenner's "serious goal." A source told ESPN New York earlier this offseason that if Alex Rodriguez's suspension is upheld, the Yankees may be able to find the money for both Robinson Cano and Brian McCann."
