MLB rumors: New York Yankees have little interest in Brian Roberts

The New York Yankees are still trying to plug holes on their infield, which has all but linked them to any available infielder with a hint of talent.

Case in point, Brian Roberts, who most Yankees fans are familiar with as Roberts spent many seasons down the road in Baltimore with the Orioles.

When Roberts played, he was a very solid second baseman, but the problem for Roberts was just that – playing. The infielder has become one of the most injury prone players in Major League Baseball and now at 36, the Yankees’ interest in Roberts is described as ‘little’ by the New York Post:

If not Infante, maybe the Yankees could turn to free agent Mark Ellis, who at 36 probably needs to be limited to 100 or so games and is mainly a quality professional stopgap more than anything now. They seem to have little interest in Brian Roberts.

A healthy Roberts is one thing, but given his age and inability to stay on the field, there are far better options for the Bronx Bombers moving forward.
