With a couple of starts and not a complete game’s worth of innings under their belts, none of the Yankees’ five declared in-house candidates for the two vacant rotation spots have busted out with a strong case for the job.
No surprise there. It’s early yet and most of them still have the potential to grow into it with regular work toeing the rubber in live game situations. It won’t happen in the three weeks before Opening Day though, and it was never going to happen in the space of one spring training camp.

Which is why we here at BYB are pleased to read in the NY Post per George King III that a White Sox scout is STILL “a constant figure at the Yankees’ exhibition games to evaluate talent” with an eye toward moving Jose Quintana, the former Yankee pitching prospect who once upon a time got sent packing for not looking like a perfect fit on the Scranton Shuttle to Joba-cide and instead made it big in the city of big shoulders and even bigger hairy arms.

There ARE at least three other teams known to be scope-locked on Jose whom the Sox are similarly scouting. And sooner or later — correction, whomever’s soonest — SOMEONE is going to get a great deal on a great starter for the cost of a couple of suspects who are at best coin flips to be any use to their teams. (And in the Yankees’ case, almost certainly can NEVER be as useful to our team as Quintana would be.)

Oh yeah, one more thing about this is real. Multiple sources confirmed back in December that Brian turned down two offers for Quintana: once with Clint Frazier at the top of a trio including Jorge Mateo and Luis Severino and once with Gleyber Torres as the trio’s headliner.

There’s many good reasons for biting the bullet, giving them their prospects and doing this deal today. (Personally, if given a choice, I’d accept the Frazier package rather than the Torres one as I think he’s got the greater bust potential.)
