The Yankees expressed interest in a reunion with infielder Eduardo Nunez over the winter.
Nunez, who was a free agent, heard from his former team, but a potential return to the Bronx never got beyond that point.

Who’s favorite in AL East?
If one of L.A.’s other defensive tackles can impress in the offseason, the Chargers could look to part with Mebane and fill out the depth chart with cheaper talent. Los Angeles would save $4.5 million by parting ways with Mebane.
The Los Angeles Rams made a pair of trades this offseason to upgrade at cornerback. The team added both Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters, who are projected to form the starting duo. Returning Rams Troy Hill and Kevin Peterson will look to provide depth behind them, along with offseason acquisition Sam Shields.
The National Football League is a bottom-line business, and the bottom line doesn’t always have to do with performances on the field. What have you done lately doesn’t even accurately sum up the business of football. When teams make their final cuts down to 53 players, age, draft status and salary can factor in just as much as how a player is performing.
Because of this, numerous talented players are always released at offseason’s end. Fair or not, it’s going to happen again this year. We’re here to try figuring out 32 of the top players who could be headed to the cut pile. We’ll pick the best player from each team and discuss the situations that could lead to his surprise release.
Center A.Q. Shipley has started all 16 games in each of the past two seasons. He isn’t likely to go anywhere. The Cardinals also have John Wetzel, who has made 19 starts in two seasons, and rookie third-round pick Mason Cole.
If the new Cardinals regime isn’t happier with Boehm’s performance than the last one was—he was benched in favor of Earl Watford before injuries forced him back into the lineup—he could be out. However, Boehm has both the talent and the experience to catch on elsewhere.
