Morning Bits: Hunter, Rivera, Kuroda

Good morning everyone and a Happy Sunday to you all. Let’s get on with the Morning Bits, shall we?

— With Nick Swisher not likely to return, the most sought out right fielder on the free agent market is Torii Hunter. He had an OPS of .817 last season, he’s a good defender and he’s 37. What’s bad about it? He’s 37 and might want two years.

— While filming a commercial the other day, Mariano Rivera threw 25 tosses off a mound. He said he “felt great.” It was the first time he threw off a mound since tearing his ACL in May.

— If Hiroki Kuroda signs with another team, it could be tough for the Yankees this offseason.

  1. Mo actually was throwing at a high school just about 15 minutes away from me…..wish I had known.

    But yeah, if Kuroda leaves the Yankees are in big trouble. He’s gotta be their #1 priority, of course considering Mo and Andy aren’t really free agents in a sense that it’s Yankees or retirement for them. Apparently Cashman sees Japan as a bigger threat than any major league teams pursuing him, so we’ll see.

    There’s a lot of other options, but the Yankees probably don’t want to spend more than about 10 million for a one year deal, and no other pitchers on the market will accept that unless they’re still available come January or February and the Yankees are once again piecing together a team based on scraps…..come on Cash….

    Sorry I haven’t been around much. Baseball was put on the back-burner in light of the hurricane and nor’easter and I’m trying to get back into it and see what’s going on.
