Reports: Robertson rejects Yanks’ QO

With the 5 p.m. ET deadline rapidly approaching, there have been multiple reports that Yankees reliever David Robertson has turned down New York’s one-year, $15.3-million qualifying offer.

Robertson, along with Francisco Liriano and Michael Cuddyer (who just signed a two-year deal with the Mets), were considered the most likely to accept their teams’ deal. No player has ever done so.

YES Network‘s Jack Curry first reported the news. Curry says the Yankees and Robertson will continue to work toward a more long-term deal.
