ESPN is reporting that the Yankees might possibly want to make a counter-offer to the Atlanta Braves offer to AJ Burnett last week. Burnett was offered a 4 year, $60 Million contract with a buyout and/or option year that brings the total value of the contract to $75 Million. The Yankees want to meet with Burnett’s agent during the Winter Meetings this week. We’ll see what happens and if the Yankees do make a counter-offer.
Jon Heyman is reporting the Yankees might be willing to give Burnett 4 years/$64 Million.
