The Yankees have had talks with pitcher Nathan Eovaldi and his agent about bringing the right-hander back to New York, reports Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News.
Eovaldi, 26, underwent his second Tommy John surgery in August and was released by the Yankees in November as the team made its roster cuts.
"We've had discussions with Nathan Eovaldi about trying to find a solution that works for both sides," Cashman said, according to Mazzeo. "But he's still a free agent and there's competition for him. Other than the injury, you couldn't say enough about him. His makeup is off the charts. His work ethic was off the charts.
"He was a performer for us, but unfortunately, injuries hit. He's weighing a lot of different decisions. I've talked to his agent Seth Levinson several times regarding him."
In two seasons with the Yankees, Eovaldi was 23-11 with a 4.45 ERA in 51 games (48 starts).
