The market for Shin-Soo Choo

New York Yankees


After adding Ellsbury and Beltran through free agency, the Yankees have six outfielders on the roster (Ellsbury, Beltran, Gardner, Alfonso Soriano, Vernon Wells and Ichiro Suzuki). With holes to fill at second base, third base, the starting rotation and the bullpen, GM Brian Cashman will probably take a pass on adding a seventh outfielder to the mix.

Barring the addition of a "mystery" team to the list, those look like Boras' options. It doesn't necessarily bode well for Choo to land a deal of $130 million-plus for six or seven years. But feel free to stop us if you've heard that one before. If the first month of the Hot Stove season is any indication, we should probably expect the unexpected.
