News Report: Yankees Could Sign Superstar Ace If He’s Willing To Make One…..

There continues to be a lot of speculation about what the New York Yankees’ next move will be. New York made a plethora of moves throughout the offseason and already is one of the top teams in the American League. The Yankees likely will need to sign another starting pitcher if they want to truly compete for a World Series title, though. The Yankees have been linked to two-time Cy Young Award winner Blake Snell on multiple occasions but haven’t gotten a deal done to this point.

This doesn’t mean the club can’t sign him, though. New York still is in talks with Snell’s representatives but a deal won’t happen unless he lowers his demands, according to the New York Post’s Jon Heyman. “There’s a lot of internet buzz about the Yankees and Blake Snell, and though there’s no evidence there’s been significant movement in talks in weeks — and the sides are at least chatting — a slight softening on the Yankees’ part was recently detected,” Heyman said. “A Yankees person who’d been saying for weeks they are ‘done’ seeking Snell only noted late this week that Snell’s camp would have to ‘move’ (i.e. lower its demands) to get something done. “Based on the Yankees’ original offer, first reported by The Post weeks ago, the sides were about $100 million-plus apart (though at the time the Yankees were believed willing to go to a sixth year). The short-term thought might be tough for the Yankees since a higher average annual value adds luxury-tax money, and they’d still be giving up draft choices.”
