Сообщение though he was never in serious trouble 
SAN DIEGO - The New York Yankees never made an offer to re-sign closer David Robertson, preferring to add Andrew Miller and get an extra draft pick next June.Robertson agreed late Monday to a $46 million, four-year contract with the Chicago White Sox, a person familiar with the negotiations said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal had not been announced.Yankees general manager Brian Cashman revealed Tuesday he had no interest in retaining Robertson once New York agreed Friday to a $36 million, four-year deal with Miller.The Miller acquisition with the draft pick was the best route we think and I think of moving forward, regardless of how great Robertson has been as a setup man and a closer this past year, Cashman said. It might not be the popular decision but I think its the best one.When the Yankees announced Millers agreement Friday, Cashman didnt rule out keeping Robertson.I wanted him to maximize his free-agent value, to be honest, not that he needs any help from me, Cashman said, but I felt it was in his interest to get out the Yankees still (being) in it.Cashman met Monday with Robertsons agent, Scott Leventhal.Is there a Yankee price you want me to consider? Cashman recalled asking. And he just said, If youre interested, make me an offer.They never made me an offer, Cashman added. I never made them one.Robertson, a right-hander who turns 30, had spent his seven-year big league career with the Yankees. He took over from Mariano Rivera as New Yorks closer last season and saved 39 games in 44 chances.Im happy for him, because I feel like relievers get one shot usually at a long-term contract, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said.New Yorks remaining bullpen options include Miller, Dellin Betances, Shawn Kelley, Adam Warren and Justin Wilson. None has been a regular closer.We feel that our bullpen is going to be very strong again, Girardi said. Trying to iron out a closer, thats something well have to do. Im not really worried about that because of the arms that we have down there.Robertsons exit follows Robinson Canos departure last off-season for Seattle, which gave him a $240 million, 10-year deal. With the retirements of Rivera after the 2013 season and Derek Jeter this year, outfielder Brett Gardner becomes the Yankees senior homegrown player.I would think the fan base is connected to the pinstripes and hopefully the winning teams that we always intend to put on the field, Cashman said.

Alcides Escobar had three hits and Omar Infante also drove in two runs for the Royals, who followed up a sweep at the hands of Minnesota last weekend by sweeping Houston and then taking the first of their three-game set against the Twins this weekend. Ricky Nolasco (1-2) gave up five runs on 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Twins. He was coming off a 7-1 win over Kansas City in which he allowed one run on four hits in eight innings. Vargas (2-0), who signed a $32 million, four-year deal in the off-season, allowed seven hits while striking out four in another dazzling start. The crafty left-hander lowered his ERA to 1.24 while going at least seven innings in each of his four outings this season. Vargas put runners on base each of the first five innings, though he was never in serious trouble. Only twice did a runner reach second base and each time a lazy fly ball ended the inning. Even when the Twins hit a ball hard, Alex Gordon was there to make a play. The Royals Gold Glove left-fielder threw a strike from the warning track to second base in the fourth inning, cutting down Josmil Pinto as he tried to stretch a single. Two innings later, Gordon made a running catch into the padding in foul territory on Jooe Mauers fly ball.dddddddddddd Escobar sent a charge through the Royals anemic offence with a double in the third inning, and consecutive singles by Nori Aoki, Infante and Eric Hosmer staked them to a 2-0 lead.

His second homer of the season made it 5-0 and chased Nolasco from the game.
