MLB Trade Rumors: New York Yankees

Yankees give last $2M to versatile veteran OF -

"If Winn does capture the regular left-field job, the Yankees could use Gardner as a bench player to capitalize on his best assets of defense and base stealing, send him back to the minors (he has an option left) or possibly dangle him in trades (the Reds, Padres, White Sox and Royals all inquired on Gardner this offseason to be their starting center fielder).

Yankees officials still expect to sign a righty-hitting outfielder to a minor league contract with Rocco Baldelli, Jonny Gomes and Marcus Thames under consideration."

I could have titled the post "Killing Fantasy Sleepers Brett Gardner Version". There is no way Gardner gets anywhere near the necessary ABs with Winn and a righty-hitting thumper in town.
