Yankees Not Interested In Johan Santana

The New York Yankees have expressed zero interest in free agent left handed starting pitcher Johan Santana for 2014.Santana is coming off of his second torn capsule in his left throwing shoulder and would probably not command more than a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training. One torn capsule usually ends a pitchers career so Santana having a second one is what is keeping him from garnering any serious consideration for a contract this early in the offseason.

I think if all Santana wants, or will get in the end, is a minor league deal with an invite to Spring Training then I don't see why we are not showing interest. There is no such thing as a bad minor league deal. Hell if he could teach Manny Banuelos that Bugs Bunny changeup that would be worth the $400 K or so he would command if he got a contract. Maybe in February the Yankees will change their mind, stay tuned.
