If other teams thought he had value he would have been traded for something.

When you trade a guy for nothing it's called releasing them.

They could've traded him for a bag of balls, a 18 year old international guy. Elias obviously didn't get what they wanted to move Villar, Givens, or Mancini. Guess they all suck!

That's speculation.

The only word we have is what Roch said, I think the phrase was "very available".

A two year deal for a small AAV would be acceptable. They aren’t doing anything for two years until some pitchers are ready. Villar is a decent placeholder.

Plays everywhere, hits a bunch sometimes, puts pressure on pitchers (for good AND bad...) Good placeholder to glue a team of youngsters together.

Another month of that and he'd fit in with the Orioles.

Roch is about as tied in as I am ..... He's no source

 

Its speculation? There were rumors about discussions all three of them.

Yeah, I’d be fine with ‘bad’ Tanaka on this team.

Another month of that, and the Yankees could be looking for another starting pitcher for the postseason ........ although, I'm not sure that they have a lot of other options.

I can point to several games before the deadline where he had meaningful hits! I know he had the game winning homer in one! Why are you so down on him???

He has no trade value. He’s a careless player. You can’t coach careless, can’t fix it, can’t anticipate it....you can only avoid it.

He’s a player for a bad team. He won’t be tendered because the Os aren’t going to pay him 6-7 mill. Someone will sign him for 2-3, and it might be us, but that’s only because next year we will still be a bad team.

Givens for a second inning...

 

I can see it, tie game, might go on and on... but seriously?

Yes .... And they it appears they've have been working with his swing. He said so in an interview. He might be able to get closer to .270-.280 with a .340-.350 OBP.
