Insight: With Jacoby Ellsbury playing center field and Robinson Cano still unsigned, Granderson is no longer a priority for the Yankees. The two sides are discussing a three-year contract though Granderson's camp is pushing for a four-year pact. With the Winter Meetings coming up, Granderson should make his decision in the near future.
Description: Kelly Johnson is headed to the Yankees. According to the New York Post's Joel Sherman, his new deal is worth between $2.75 and $3 million.
Insight: It's a one-year contract. Johnson (.235, 16 HR, 52 RBI) played all over the field in Tampa Bay last season including left field and three out of the four infield positions (he didn't play shortstop). He could be an option for the Yankees at second base should Robinson Cano sign with another team.

Insight: Wednesday marked Braun's first public comments since getting suspended for performance enhancing drugs in July. Moving to right would solidify Khris Davis' place in the starting lineup, though it wouldn't have much of an impact on Braun's output. Braun, a third baseman early in his career, said he would not be open to playing that position again.
