Gardner, Drew, and Prado Clear Revocable Waivers

Brett Gardner, Stephen Drew, and Martin Prado have cleared revocable waivers and are able to be traded to any team for the rest of the season. It's merely a procedural move to place players on waivers in August but this interesting if the Yankees fall out of the race that they could at least unload Prado or Drew. Last season the Yankees waited too long after falling out of the race and were stuck with ace Hiroki Kuroda and Robinson Cano specifically.

Speaking of waivers the Yankees made a run at Texas' outfielder Alex Rios and learned the news today that Rios was placed on revocable waivers. The Yankees could either claim him and try to work out a trade, or take on his salary, or they could wait and hope for him to clear waivers and try to work a trade out.

The Los Angeles Dodgers were able to sneak Matt Kemp, Carl Crawford, Josh Beckett, and Andre Ethier through waivers as well and can trade them anywhere is the Yankees are interested.


  1. Alex Rios is a very good fielder, hitting well, and has some speed. On the surface he would be a good fit for what we need in right field...IF he were 3 years younger.

  2. That's what I'm talkin', and you pinstripers use your imaginations !

    This is about, Rusney Castillo. I will try to make my point clearer.
    Three Cuban's have been signed of late, and they are now All-Stars. Do we have one of them ? No.

    No one knew much about Puig, Abreu, or Cespedes. They do now.
    Castillo has been compared to Cesepedes. By whom ? I don't know.... Castro, perhaps.
    With all four of these guys, it's been a mystery. But the first three, have been outstanding.
    Bottom line....what if Castillo, is another Cespedes ? Then, don't miss out on this one.

    Imagination time : The Yankee outfield with the addition of Cespedes...aka...Castillo.
    Imagine again : After Jeter leaves..... Drew, Proto, Refvsnider, Tex, Alex ?

    The outfield would be magnificent....is Castillo, is another Cespedes. Agree ?
    Yankee mgmt, please do your homework, this time.

    1. I am agreeing with you on this one, bring me Rusney. Dump Ichiro.

  3. ROCKET...the spammer...REED.
    You are in my thoughts. Anne, and I spoke of you, last Saturday night.
    You would have laughed, we did. Take care.

    1. Give Anne a big hug for me. How the hell a sweet woman like her puts up with you is beyond me! LOL
