11:08 AM ET 12.15 | With Omar Infante off the board, the market for second basemen has become that tougher to find what the Yankees need. Mark Ellis and Brian Roberts are available, and though Cashman declined to discuss any potential interest the Yankees might have in either player, they could go in that direction. Ellis spent the last two seasons with the Dodgers. He missed more than a month of action in 2012 after suffering a leg injury after he was slid into during a double play. Last year, he played in 126 games and had a .674 OPS. Though there is no way for the Yankees to replace Cano's offense at the position -- or perhaps anywhere else -- Ellis is known as an excellent defensive second baseman and made just six errors in 2013. Roberts hasn't played more than 77 games in a season since 2009 with Baltimore and likely wouldn't be able to be relied upon on an everyday basis.

The Yankees had so many holes to fill at the end of last season that it is not realistic to think it can all be fixed in one off season. Fine by me, just DO NOT lock long term on to a short term fix. Good work by Cashman so far....
