Yankees late afternoon news and notes: 11/23/15

Some late afternoon news and notes for you on this chilly November day.

  • Gil Patterson is heading back to the A's organization. Susan Slusser first reported the move on Twitter. Patterson was with the Yankees as a Minor League pitching coordinator for three seasons. Before that, he was with A's as a roving pitching instructor from 2008-2012 after serving as a coach in the organization.
  • In case you missed it this weekend, Joel Sherman wrote a piece called "10 pitchers who could be the Yankees' next Nathan Eovaldi." It's pretty interesting. Tell me what you think of the choices in the comments.
  • Ken Rosenthal published a piece yesterday about how the Yankees' financial restraints could cost them both Brett Gardner and Andrew Miller. My question is, why did they even sign Miller in the first place if they're so willing to trade him? Seems silly to me. But hey, what do I know? I'm blogger who writes in my mom's den.
  • The person who started a chain of events that I still can't to this day believe happened will be the Dodgers' new manager. He's like Voldemort around here and we do not say his name.
  • I don't know about you, but I'm enjoying the crazy trade rumors that have been floating around so far this offseason. And we're still 133 days away from the Yankees playing again! We have a long way to go.

Enjoy your evening.
