Yankees and Cardinals have talked about a David Freese trade
St. Louis could possibly move Matt Carpenter to third base, and play Kolten Wong at second.
The Yankees appear to be planning for 2014 as if they won't have Alex Rodriguez, who is fighting a 211-game PED suspension. The Cardinals could possibly move Matt Carpenter to third base and play Kolten Wong at second base.
Freese' stature has fallen a bit since winning the 2011 World Series MVP, and he batted as low as seventh in the Cardinals' World Series lineup. Freese had the game-tying two-run triple in the ninth inning of Game 6 of the 2011 World Series vs. Texas, then hit the game-winning walkoff home run two innings later.
Freese, 30, hit .260 with nine homers and 60 RBI in 2013.
The talks were first reported by the New York Daily News.
