MLB Free Agency: New York Yankees offered Omar Infante a three year deal

Now that Robinson Cano is out of the picture for the New York Yankees, the franchise is currently looking for his replacement.

According to Jon Heyman on Twitter, the New York Yankees have offered Omar Infante a three year deal.

A colleague of mine here at FanSided reported earlier that the New York Yankees actually rejected a trade that would involve Brett Gardner and veteran infielder Brandon Phillips. If this team were to pull the trigger on that trade, they would have been set to reach the post-season after failing to do so last year.

The Yankees already found a replacement for Alex Rodriguez for the 2014 in former Tampa Bay Ray infielder Kelly Johnson, but could use him at second base from time to time if they’re unable to sign Infante.

If all else fails, they could bring in Mark Ellis for a year or try to acquire Milwaukee Brewer’s Rickie Weeks.

Here’s a look at what the Yankees lineup could look like if they signed Infante.
