New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has declared that a deal involving Brian McCann does not seem imminent.
According to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports and MLB Network, Brian Cashman said a trade involving their 32-year old DH/catcher “does not appear imminent.”
McCann, who will likely take over as the team’s primary designated hitter, slashed .274/.361/.387 with three home runs and 15 RBI while penciled in the lineup as the DH in 2016.
One can assume a possibility of a deal is evaporating into thin air thanks to the full no-trade clause that was implemented in McCann’s contract when he signed with the team back on Dec. 3, 2013.
