Let’s check in with the Yankee related trade news…
First, the Yankees–along with the Red Sox and Tigers–are interested in current Athletic reliever Craig Breslow. Breslow, who will be 30 in August, has pitched 189.2 innings in his big league career (200 games) to the tune of a 151 ERA+. His FIP is 3.79 and his xFIP is 4.51. He’s walked about four per nine in his career, but he’s done a good job (0.7 HR/9) of keeping balls in the park. His line against lefties is also very impressive: .199/.277/.316/.593 in 318 PAs. As someone who doesn’t have much faith in Boone Logan, Breslow could be a good addition.
While he hasn’t been linked specifically to the Yankees, I’d like to keep up on Brett Myers. The Astros say they would need to be overwhelmed by a trade offer for Myers. I think he’d be a good addition for the Yankees, but the price has to be right. The Astros are outside their heads if they think a team will give them a blow away offer for Myers.
Jayson Stark reminds us that the Yankees aren’t likely to be in on Ted Lilly. As I said in the comments on Stephen’s article a few days ago, there’s really no reason for the Yankees to trade for a pure starter like Lilly unless they know Andy Pettitte is going to be out for the year.
We got word the other day that the Yankees were interested in Jhonny Peralta for the bench role. I’m not too keen on him, really. He hits better than Ramiro Pena–but most people do–without offering the good defense and low salary. If the deal was really sweet for the Yankees–that is a low cost in players and perhaps even some salary pick up from the Indians–I could go for this, but I’m not a huge fan of Peralta’s.
The Yankees may also be in on Dan Haren. I’m not sure if this is real interest or just driving up the price interest or a writer linking the Yankees because that’ll get it more noticed interest, but I’m interested nonetheless. I’ve always liked Dan Haren and if the Yankees can buy low on him, that’d be great. Of course, that would all but guarantee a move to the bullpen for Phil Hughes. It would also make the off-season interesting with a lot of pitchers for a few spots.
