The Yankees exercised their options on Curtis Granderson, Robinson Cano and David Aardsma Monday, the first of many moves expected this offseason in The Bronx.
Granderson and Cano both had $15 million options which were all but certain to be picked up despite their postseason struggles. Aardsma made it back from Tommy John surgery late in the year.
Now, GM Brian Cashman’s attention can shift to setting next season’s roster, since the Yankees have plenty of question marks and plan to get under the $189 million payroll threshold by 2014.
Nothing unexpected here.
For anyone who’s affected by Hurricane Sandy, be safe.
