Update (10:12pm): Mark Feinsand says they’re close to a deal, but it’s not a salary dump. Yay, no Lowe!
Update (9:50pm): Ken Davidoff hears the Yanks have (are in?) “two or three” serious trade discussions for a starter, though none for Harang.
8:50pm: Via Buster Olney, the Yankees are “working very hard tonight on deal for starting pitcher.” Tonight being the key word. Earlier today we heard the team was looking to add a starter before New Year’s, but that seemed rather arbitrary. Olney’s wording leads you to believe the team is in the final stages of negotiations at this moment.
So … any guesses? Olney mentions they were in on Aaron Harang last year, but that’s not a small contract.
