  • Yankees Have Discussed Jurickson Profar

    The New York Yankees have discussed signing free-agent infielder/outfielder Jurickson Profar, but the Yankees are also adamant about staying under the "Steve Cohen tax" threshold of $293 million. They are currently at around $290 million. In addition to Profar, the Yankees have also checked in on Josh Harrison. The 29-year-old Profar reached free agency after declining his $8.33 million player option with the San Diego Padres for 2023. He became the Friars' everyday left field option in 2022 and hit .243/.331/.391 with a .723 OPS, 15 home runs, 58 RBI, 82 runs scored and five stolen bases in 152 games. Profar's bat might be slightly more attractive at Yankee Stadium, but he also wouldn't be guaranteed the playing time that he saw in San Diego.

  • Red Sox Express Interest In Elvis Andrus, Jurickson Profar

    USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported Monday that the Boston Red Sox have "expressed interest" in free agent shortstop Elvis Andrus and free agent second baseman/outfielder Jurickson Profar. The team will be without Trevor Story (elbow) for several months at least as he recovers from elbow surgery and they no longer have Xander Bogaerts, so either or both players would provide depth. Andrus had a surprise 2022 season, slashing .249/.303/.404 with 17 home runs, 58 RBI, and 18 stolen bases with the Athletics and White Sox. Profar slashed .243/.331/.391 with 15 home runs, 58 RBI, and five stolen bases with the Padres.The Red Sox lineup will not be as strong as it historically has been, and while either player could provide speed with some power, they would be at best late-round roto picks if they signed.

  • Red Sox Interested In Jurickson Profar, Elvis Andrus

    The Red Sox were known to be looking for middle infield help even before news broke earlier this week about Trevor Story’s internal brace surgery on his right elbow, which could keep the shortstop on the injured list for most (or potentially all) of the 2023 season.  In the wake of Story’s surgery, two names…
