Yankees Rumors: New York Targeting Veteran Starters

The New York Yankees will continue to offer “bold” one-year contracts, like the one they signed right-hander Hiroki Kuroda to yesterday, to veteran pitchers this winter, reports Joel Sherman of The New York Post.

Sherman adds that the Yankees are comfortable dishing out one-year contracts to veteran pitchers. The lack of commitment lowers the risk of the deals, and there would be no money counted toward the team’s books for the 2014 season when they hope to be at or below the $189 million luxury tax threshold.

The Yankees are also expected to “bottom feed” on deals similar to the one they offered Freddy Garcia in years past, according to Sherman. While the team isn’t expected to re-sign Garcia, they will target buy-low types. One name Sherman throws out is former Oakland Athletics left-hander Dallas Braden.
