Yankees GM Brian Cashman Met With Agents for Pujols, Cespedes
New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reportedly met with the agents of Albert Pujols and Yoennis Cespedes yesterday afternoon, according ESPN New York.
Cashman did not disclose which players were discussed in the meetings, however it is a possibility Bartolo Colon and Carlos Beltran were a part of the conversation, as were Pujols and Cespedes.
Earlier this offseason, Cashman said that targeting Pujols was "not an efficient way to allocate our resources,” and that the team’s main priority is pitching. The Yankees, however, have been known to often target the best player on the market regardless of needs. Cashman described his meetings with agents as “more everybody feeling out everybody else.” “I’ve had a hard time getting dollar figures from agents, to be honest,'' Cashman added.
