David Robertson declines qualifying offer

This comes as little surprise but David Roberston has declined the teams $15.3 million qualifying offer.

It remains to be seen if the Yankees and Robertson can come to terms on a long term deal, but if Robertson signs elsewhere then the Yankees will receive a compensation draft pick.

Yankees resign OF Chris Young

Many outlets are reporting that the Yankees and Chris Young have reached an agreement on a one year deal, $2.5MM deal. The Yankees acquired Chris Young after he was released by the Mets late in the 2014 season.

Young, 31, will likely be one of the Yankees platoon outfielders as he joins Brett Gardner, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Carlos Beltran.

In only 79 plate appearances with the Yankees last season, Young posted a .289/.354/.521, which was an improvement after what he had done with the Mets.
