    Bauer, LeMahieu, Springer top list of available free agents

    The free agent market received a small boost this week, although it remains to be seen whether teams will be eager to take advantage. A record 59 players became free agents when their teams declined to offer them contracts by Wednesday night's tender deadline. Teams may be looking to cut costs amid the coronavirus pandemic, and so far there have been only a few short deals, such as Charlie Morton going to Atlanta on a one-year, $15 million contract and Mike Minor signing with Kansas City for two years and $18 million.

    Former Yankees affiliate shuts down, sues Major League club

    A minor league baseball team once affiliated with the New York Yankees has shut down and filed a lawsuit accusing the Yankees violating an agreement that it would never abandon the farm club. The owners of the Staten Island Yankees announced in a statement Thursday that with ''great regret, we must cease operations.'' They also said they were suing the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball ''to hold those entities accountable for false promises'' that they would always keep the team as a farm club. The local franchise could have tried playing in an independent league, but that ''would force Staten Island to field a subpar team,'' the statement said.
