Yankees Wont Offer Aledmys Diaz A Contract

What a difference a couple days make. Over the weekend, and I realize I am a day late and a dollar short on this post, the Yankees were considered to be the front runners for Cuban shortstop Aledmys Diaz. Yesterday we learned that New York will not even offer the 23 year old a contract. Kind of a bummer if you ask me.

This came after the Yankees held a private workout for Diaz on Friday, they must not have been impressed. New York will also not offer a contract to Odrisamer Despaigne, although he is not a can't miss prospect either. This makes sense if the rumors of Diaz asking for $20 million are true because I cannot see him being worth the contract. He would have been nice though, especially for next season.
