    Yankees in on Cuban Free Agent Outfielder Daniel Carbonell

    Rosenthal: Yankees one of five finalists for Cuban OF Daniel Carbonell

    By Michael Axisa

    Via Ken Rosenthal: The Yankees are one of five finalists for Cuban outfielder Daniel Carbonell. We heard they had interest in him a few weeks ago. Carbonell has to sign by July 2nd, otherwise he will be subject to the international spending restrictions.

    Carbonell, 23, is said to be a speedy switch-hitting center fielder with some power. He hit .288/.378/.405 with two homers, six steals, ten walks, and eleven strikeouts in 127 plate appearances in Cuba last season before defecting. Here is his over the top workout video. Itís unclear what kind of bonus Carbonell will command. The Yankees had interest in Cuban infielder Aledmys Diaz earlier this year, but not enough to make an offer.

    If he's a poor man's Gardner and Gardner is a poor man's Ellsbury then he must be like a homeless person's Ellsbury......lol! Like you said, it's not our money so its worth a shot.

    Every time one of you says something along the lines of, "It's not my/our money, so who cares?" Jesus clubs a baby seal to death.

    It's not your money but it is your favorite team's operational budget. Still has an effect on YOU in the context of your investment (time and care) going to waste when it could have been used elsewhere.

    I don't care about baby seals. My time and care isn't going to waste when my favorite team signs one FA over someone else.

    I understand what your saying, but do the Yankees reslly truly have a budget? If they want a player they will get him. Look at this off season. 189 my *** lol
