- The Yankees resolved two of their potential non-tender situations this week with the outright releases of right-hander Nathan Eovaldi and infielder/outfielder Dustin Ackley, and they settled their business in advance of Friday's 8 p.m. ET deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players by declining to offer a deal to left-hander Jacob Lindgren.
- As CC Sabathia approaches what could be his final season with the Yankees, he feels healthy following recent right knee surgery and upbeat about the potential of his team.

- Could teams actually pay a 92 percent luxury tax under the new CBA? Yes -- and no.
- Brian Cashman spent part of his Friday morning strapping in for practice rappels down the side of the 22-story Landmark Building, and his annual participation in the city's "Heights and Lights" festival served an apt analogy with the Yankees' general manager preparing to jump ahead with his offseason business in advance of next week's Winter Meetings.

- Yanks both rebuilding and reloading this winter. Wait ... what?
- James Rowson helped players like Gary Sanchez, Tyler Austin, Greg Bird and Aaron Judge tackle Triple-A pitching, and at some point all of them ended up bringing what Rowson taught them to the Major Leagues.
However, the Yankees are going to have to look for a new minor league hitting coordinator.
According to George A. King of the New York Post, Rowson has left the Yankees organization. But don’t worry, because Rowson has a new job; he’s going to be the Majo

- Brian Cashman's stance heading into the Winter Meetings is that he plans to be "open-minded to what's available," which should serve as an open invitation to the free agents and potential trade partners who might wander by the Yankees' suite.
- Remember how every year the American League and the National League would duke it out during the All-Star Game and the winner would receive home field advantage during the World Series?
Well, those days are officially gone.
According to the new CBA rules, the All-Star Game will not determine which team gets advantage during the Fall Classic. Instead, the team who has the best record in the regular season will decide.
Instead of home field advantage, players in the All-Star Game will have a chan
- Good news, Major League Baseball fans. The union and the Players Association have agreed on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement which will last for the next five years.
The bad news? The new CBA won’t take into effect until next season, meaning the rules of the old CBA still apply for the 2016-2017 offseason.
Before we discuss what’s new in the CBA, let’s discuss what the union wanted that ultimately didn’t make the cut:
— The union wanted an international draft,
- Major League Baseball's players and owners have agreed on a new collective bargaining agreement, sources tell MLB.com's Richard Justice. The new agreement calls for a five-year deal, according to multiple reports. Neither side has confirmed a new agreement is formally in place, but representatives from both camps emerged visibly pleased and shook hands in public view nearly four hours before Wednesday night's deadline.
- Even though the Yankees are going through a youth movement, there’s still room for veterans on the team. And you know it’s no secret the Yankees are interested in uniting with Carlos Beltran.
However, if the Yankees are hoping for a reunion with Beltran, it’s not going to be that easy.
According to Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish, the Yankees aren’t the only ones after Beltran. The Boston Red Sox, Houston Astros and the Toronto Blue Jays are the other three teams vy

- The Yankees resolved two of their potential non-tender situations this week with the outright releases of right-hander Nathan Eovaldi and infielder/outfielder Dustin Ackley in advance of Friday's 11:59 p.m. ET deadline to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players.
- Brian Cashman and Hal Steinbrenner usually see eye to eye on things.
However, the situation in right field is something both don’t agree on–yet.
While Cashman believes labeling Aaron Judge as the right fielder is premature, Steinbrenner believes the job for right field is Judge’s job to lose.
“He’s got some work to do; he knows that,” Steinbrenner said about Aaron Judge on Yankees Hot Stove Monday night. Judge struck out in 42 times in his 95 plate appea

- The CBA negotiations have significantly stalled the free agent and trade market. However, the Yankees have revealed that they are frontrunners for closer Aroldis Chapman.
They just won’t sign him for $100 Million.
Other than the Brian McCann trade, the Yankees have been extremely quiet this offseason, mainly because all general managers are left without a concrete number on how much they could spend without going over the luxury tax. And according to George King of the New York

- Hal Steinbrenner said that it was "emotional" to watch Aaron Judge homer in his first Major League plate appearance, and the Yankees' managing general partner is counting on the 24-year-old slugger to grab hold of the starting right-field job next spring.
- That cutter was extremely literal.
- As part of MLBPipeline.com's coverage of all things prospect and the AFL in particular, a group of five experts was assembled to discuss a quintet of up-and-coming stars. Each prospect has lofty expectations and an argument can be made for all of them to have the brightest futures. Those arguments were hashed out in "The Next Big Leaguers."
- Yankees release Eovaldi, Rumbelow, Mantiply
- The New York Yankees continued making cuts off the 40-man roster, even though it was at the expense of Nathan Eovaldi.
The Yankees announced this evening the team unconditionally released Eovaldi, Nick Rumbelow and Joe Mantiply.
Eovaldi’s release isn’t a surprise; the right-hander underwent Tommy John Surgery which will keep him out for the entire 2017 season. Eovaldi was part of a five-player trade that sent David Phelps and Martin Prado to the Miami Marlin
- The Yankees have unconditionally released pitchers Nathan Eovaldi, Joe Mantiply and Nick Rumbelow. The three hurlers had been designated for assignment Nov. 18.

- New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi was released Monday, Nov. 28.

- Taking the field: How all 29 other teams can beat the Cubs in 2017
- In the hours immediately following the phone call that informed Brian McCann that he would be reporting to camp as a member of the Astros, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman took a moment to appreciate how the offseason landscape had now changed for his club.
- Major League Baseball and the Players Union have been hard at work trying to come up with a new Collective Bargaining Agreement prior to the Thursday, December 1st deadline.
However, both sides aren’t close to a deal.
With the Thursday deadline rapidly approaching, and both sides currently not seeing eye to eye, is it possible we could see another Major League Baseball lockout?
Before we discuss a possible lockout, here are a few proposals regarding the new CBA:

- When Brian Cashman said the Yankees have called about everyone on the free agent market, he truly meant everyone.
And that includes left fielder Matt Holliday, according to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports.
Holliday finished the season with the St. Louis Cardinals where his average dipped from 2015. In 110 games, Holliday hit .246/.322/.461. However, his home run total was up from 2015, hitting 20 home runs and driving in 62 versus four homers and 35 RBI.

- Earlier this month, Major League Baseball had Dellin Betances as one of the names to potentially join the Team USA roster for the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
However, Betances has decided he wanted to play for Team Dominican Republic this Spring, in order to honor his family.
“Both teams want me to play [for them], but I made a commitment to the DR,’’ Betances told The New York Post on Wednesday. “That is where my family is from, and I want to make them proud.&rsqu

- The Yankees have hinted that they would love to re-sign former closer Aroldis Chapman. Even with the huge price tag Chapman has on him in a thin free agent market.
And even though Chapman spent the last three months winning a World Series with the Chicago Cubs, he said he would love to return to where he started his season–with the New York Yankees.
“I would love to be a Yankee again,’’ Chapman told New York Sports Day earlier this week.
“We’ve said all
- After experiencing what he called a "whirlwind" season, in which the Yankees tested his ability to learn several new positions on the fly, Rob Refsnyder is thankful for an opportunity to kick back with his loved ones, taking a momentary step back in time before he prepares for what promises be a pivotal year in his development.
- Dellin Betances has decided to pitch for the Dominican Republic team in the upcoming World Baseball Classic, the Yankees reliever told the New York Post.
