Damon’s asking price too high for Yankees
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has said that nothing is hot at
the moment with free agent outfielder Johnny Damon, and Scott Boras’
asking price may have a lot to do with that.
The New York Daily
News reported Sunday that the Yankees have not made an offer to Damon,
citing team sources. That is because Boras informed them not to bother
unless it was for at least three years and no less than the $13 million
salary that Damon made last year, the report stated.
stance on Damon is that they want him back but are not prepared to go
beyond two years at approximately $8 million per season. Cashman has
said that he does not feel like he is “waiting anyone out,” but the
Yankees’ trade for Curtis Granderson allows them to take more of a
hard-line stance with a player like Damon.
