From George King III (NY Post):
Pittsburgh had two scouts at last night’s game, Jim Benedict, a former Yankees scout, and Larry Corrigan. Their presence fueled speculation the Yankees have an interest in 30-year-old lefty reliever John Grabow.
With Damaso Marte’s return from shoulder problems looking less likely by the day, the Yankees could use a second lefty to complement Phil Coke, who has done very well.
Interestingly, King notes that the scouts “fueled speculation that the Yankees have an interest” in John Grabow, however, I think I’m the only one who has written about it as of late. Anyway, given the likelihood that Wang’s injury may eat into a significant portion of the bullpen’s depth, acquiring a lefty like Grabow—or a late-inning arm, in general—could become a must for the team. However, the Pirates don’t necessarily have much left-handed depth from which to replace Grabow, therefore, despite the speculation, they may choose to hold on to him once the trade deadline nears.
