WFAN’s Chris McMonigle issued a formal apology to Yankees General Manager Brian Cashman following his public expression of frustration over the team’s unsuccessful bid to acquire former Brewers ace pitcher Corbin Burnes, who has since joined the Baltimore Orioles. McMonigle expressed regret after gaining further insight into Cashman’s rationale, particularly in light of recent revelations about the failed trade.

Mea culpa in the Bronx?

During a segment of Jon Heyman’s Hot Stove Notebook in The New York Post, Heyman delved into the details of the situation, revealing that Milwaukee had expressed interest in acquiring the Yankees’ top outfield prospect, Spencer Jones. Heyman remarked, “The Yankees were certainly in on Burnes. My understanding is that Milwaukee, like the White Sox, wanted Spencer Jones. People love Spencer Jones… Jones, I think, was a key for the Yankees and they didn’t want to give him up.”

Spencer Jones, a first-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2022, commanded a signing bonus of $2.88 million. His tenure with the Hudson Valley Renegades in High-A ball persisted until late August before he transitioned to the Double-A Somerset Patriots. Over the course of 117 games, Jones boasted a .267 batting average, 29 doubles, 16 home runs, 66 RBIs, 43 stolen bases, and a .780 OPS.

Reflecting on his previous remarks, McMonigle acknowledged Jones’ significance within the Yankees‘ farm system, stating, “He’s their best prospect in the farm system.” He continued, “As much as I’m all in, there has to be some common sense that you don’t trade your top blue-chip prospect for a rental. If you don’t have to give up your top prospect for Juan Soto, why would you have to give him up for Burnes? That’s where Milwaukee was, and I completely understand Cash. I apologize. I should have never doubted you.”

It was further revealed that Jones is slated to participate in the Yankees’ spring training as a non-roster invitee, solidifying his status as a pivotal figure within the organization’s developmental framework.

  1. Well, I’m guessing right now the 3 no-trade prospects right now are Chase Hampton, Roderick Arias, & Spencer Jones. The next 2 under them to me are Ben Rice & Brock Selvidge.
