Brian Cashman on the 2018 Yankees

Yankees GM Brian Cashman joins the guys to discuss the Brandon Drury trade and what his expectations are for the upcoming season.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Aaron Boone said Aaron Judge won't play the first several games when the Yankees kick off their spring schedule on Friday. No concerns, they're just taking it slow after offseason shoulder surgery. He said Judge should play "within the week." Giancarlo Stanton is expected to be in the lineup on Friday.

Aaron Boone announced his tentative pitching rotation for the first four spring training games: Friday (Luis Cessa), Saturday (Domingo Germán), Sunday (Jordan Montgomery), Monday (Sonny Gray). Shortly after that, the vet starters will get going, he adds.

While Brian Cashman was speaking to reporters in the Yankees' dugout, there was a little commotion in the stands. Fans suddenly cheered as Aaron Judge hit a homer off the top of the scoreboard in BP. Another line-drive homer of his got caught by a young fan holding out a hat. That created some buzz, too.

Yankees GM Brian Cashman explains why he's been after Brandon Drury for a long time, and why the team traded for the third baseman yesterday.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Brian Cashman says "we paid a heavy price" in giving up Nick Solak and Taylor Widener for Brandon Drury. The trade was "made with a lot of angst." He said 10 to 15 teams had asked about Solak this offseason and the depth of the minor league system allowed them to make the deal.

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Brian Cashman says Brandon Drury was acquired primarily with the intention to play third base. The Yankees feel he's a very skilled athlete who has yet to reach his potential and they've tried to get him for several years. Drury won't be handed the starting job over Miguel Andujar, but Cashman feels his experience does give him the leg up.

Some spirited rundown drills at Yankees spring training. After Gleyber Torres accidentally ran into a runner after a quick throw to 2B (not pictured), Aaron Boone shouted: "Attaway, Gleyber. Comin' in hot!" They're loose in Tampa.

Judge's advice to Stanton: 'Don't change a thing' (2:31)

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees make it official: they've acquired infielder/outfielder Brandon Drury from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Good move by the Diamondbacks to deal Brandon Drury now, because he was one of their players I'd have most expected to suffer statistically as a result of the humidor. In New York, he'll play regularly while getting at least as much HR/FB% help, so his results should be similar.

Aaron Boone on his initial impressions of young infielders Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar: "I'm trying to contain my excitement. I think they're both going to be tremendous players. I love who they are. You can tell they enjoy being on the baseball field. You can tell they're confident in their ability, the way they move around, yet there's a humility about them."
