In the dead of winter, the New York Yankees are still trying to figure out what the best options will be in the infield. It turns out Brian Cashman is ready to go all in with his rookies.
The New York Post is the only one really spouting out news in regards to the New York Yankees during this incredible snowstorm this season. Thank goodness for them.
In a story published on Thursday by the New York Post by Dan Martin, Brian Cashman told us that while there might be more moves before spring training, he’s content with what he has for the moment.

What’s the point in going out to spend big bucks on an aging free agent when you can first test out what you’ve got in the system? That’s what Cashman should be doing and it sounds like he’s on the same page as the rest of us.
In other news for the Yankees, remember when the first base position was up in the air last season? First Chris Carter manned the corner. Then, it was Ji-Man Choi. Finally, it was Chase Headley prior to Greg Bird’s return. But let’s go back to Choi.
Now a free agent, Choi has offers from 13 MLB teams, according to his sports agency, GSM. This was originally reported by Jee-ho Yoo of Yonhap News Agency.
According to Jee-ho Yoo of South Korea Yonhap News Agency : 1B Ji-Man Choi‘s agency revealed that he’s received minor league offers from #Cubs #Yankees, #Brewers, #Marlins, #BlueJays #WhiteSox and others.Choi with Yankees Triple-A affiliate posted 288/.373/.538 in 87 games. #MLB

Choi is a hot commodity this offseason and it seems like the Yankees are interested in bringing him back as well, no doubt for Triple-A insurance. But all these other teams have interest too. Can you imagine facing Choi in Toronto?
If history means anything, he’ll crush the Yankees in an opposing uniform. That’s just how the system work.
Hopefully things will pick up this offseason as it’s been too quiet for too long. Brian Cashman, it’s your move.
