Despite a rapidly falling free-agent market, the Yankees aren't interested in a one-year deal with Alex Cobb, according to team sources. While the Bombers could add Cobb and still stay under the $197 million luxury-tax threshold, they aren't interested in sacrificing draft picks in order to sign him. The 30-year-old righty also has an injury history, having undergone Tommy John surgery in 2016, though he did manage to go 12-10 with a 3.66 ERA last season with Tampa. The Yankees had early interest in Cobb, but it quickly dissipated when they saw the way the market was going.
