Heyman, on the Yankees/Wandy

Jon Heyman had a series of tweets yesterday afternoon following the deadline where he gave some info about Wandy and the Yankees, such as:

The Yankees were willing to take about $21m of Wandy's remaining $38m. They're now unlikely to revisit Wandy after he clears waivers, given Banuelos' progress. The Indians and Blue Jays were only interested in Wandy as part of a three-way trade, presumably sending Wandy to the Yankees, after all.

So who knows if Wandy gets moved this month.

Rosenthal had this to say about the deal that wasn't:

The Astros, on the other hand, were willing to pay $2 million of Rodriguez’s salary this season or $5 million if his option for 2014 were exercised, sources said. But the teams, unable to bridge the financial gap, never even got to the point of discussing names.
