Yankees Trade Rumors: Cashman Says Reyes To Bronx 'Not Going To Happen'

See, I told you on Wednesday that the New York Yankees would not be trading for Jose Reyes. Now, Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has emphatically gone even further, pretty much saying Reyes won’t be a Yankee. Period.

“That’s just not going to happen,” Cashman told the New York Daily News. ""We have an everyday shortstop in Derek Jeter," said Cashman, who was at the Waldorf-Astoria for the CYO Club of Champions Tribute to receive the Sportsman of the Year award. “And I think we have an everyday shortstop that would be playing for a lot of clubs in Eduardo Nuñez. The Yankees don’t have a need now or in the future for a shortstop.”

The Yankees, obviously, like what they have in the 24-year-old Nunez. While filling in for Jeter Nunez has shown a quick, lively bat with some power — even though he is hitting only .241. The question about Nunez is his defense — in 24 games at shortstop he already has seven errors, and only an .891 fielding percentage.

Cashman did admit that he has been testing the market to find help for a relief corps that has been decimated by injuries to Joba Chamberlain, Pedro Feliciano and Rafael Soriano.
