Given the Yankees' current state, it always seemed hard to fathom they would be the winners in the Edwin Encarnacion sweepstakes. With Carlos Beltran headed to Houston, Matt Holliday on a one-year deal makes sense. Holliday will DH and provide outfield depth.

How does the Yankees' front office work?

With the winter meetings around the corner, you need a different kind of scorecard for who's calling the shots and stocking their rosters. Jim Bowden explains the chain of command and style for the Yankees' baseball operations leadership teams. Breaking down all 30 MLB front offices (Insider)

With Carlos Beltran an Astro, the Yankees will have to look elsewhere for a DH. Edwin Encarnacion is out there, but it remains to be seen if the Yankees will go for four or five years for $20M a season for a 33-year-old. Matt Holiday is a fallback option.

It's time to put The Boss in the Hall of Fame

It's long past time the Yankees' late owner George Steinbrenner gets into the Hall, as few have made a larger impact on the game or in pop culture.

The Yankees have non-tendered lefty reliever Jacob Lindgren. Lindgren, 23, was the Yankees' top draft pick (55th overall) in 2014 out of Mississippi State. He made the big leagues in 2015, but has been beset by injuries, including an elbow ligament that required Tommy John surgery and will likely keep him out until 2018.

The new CBA seems to be very good for the Yankees. While they very well could duck underneath the luxury tax threshold in 2018 when the number will climb to $197M, it may not be imperative. Even if they are slightly above it, their taxes will drop dramatically. With the Yankees youth movement, there is still a very good chance they will shop at the top of the market for multiple pieces in the winter prior to 2019 when Bryce Harper and Manny Machado lead an epic free agent class.

Where do Yanks stand for winter meetings?

What are the Yankees' biggest needs heading into next week's winter meetings? What free agents could they be interested in? Who could they trade? Jim Bowden breaks it down. Winter meetings checklist for all 30 teams (Insider)

Yankees' CC Sabathia sees Carlos Beltran "all the time." Their wives are close; Beltran lives in NY. "I would love for him to come back," Sabathia said. Beltran is top target of both Yanks and Red Sox.

Changes coming for big-market clubs?

Under previous versions of the CBA's luxury tax, the highest tax rate a team could pay was 50 percent, but that's no longer the case. Even with the threshold increasing to $195 million in 2017, the Dodgers, Yankees, Red Sox and Tigers would have been over this year. Story

Yankees poised to sign two top arms?

Not only are the Yankees pushing hard to bring Aroldis Chapman back, but they're among the top suitors for Rich Hill. Don't be surprised if New York gets both pitchers. Bowden: Bold December predictions (Insider)

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

With the luxury tax threshold rising to $197M in 2018, it is hard to imagine the Yankees not ducking under for that season, setting themselves up for the epic Bryce Harper, etc. free agency during the winter prior to the 2019 season.

Yankees set on bringing back Chapman

It's no secret that the Yankees would love to have Aroldis Chapman as their closer once again, but how much would they be willing to pay him? Consider Kenley Jansen a strong alternative. Bowden: Top targets, fallbacks (Insider)

Jim Bowden ESPN Senior Writer 

Rich Hill has four teams that are all "in" full pursuit of him and they are the Yankees, Dodgers, Rangers and Astros. It is believed that the Red Sox and Orioles are the two other teams that are in the mix to a lesser degree.

The Yankees could still bring back Nathan Eovaldi, according to GM Brian Cashman. The idea would be to have Eovaldi rehab in 2017 with the team and have him ready for 2018. That said, Eovaldi has the option to sign with any team after his unconditional release today.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees have unconditionally released Nathan Eovaldi. Eovaldi was likely headed for a pretty big pay day when he was scheduled to become a free agent after next season. However, instead Tommy John surgery will cost him next season, his spot on the Yankees and a lot of money. He is free to sign with any team.
