Sherman: Yanks still looking for an utility infielderBy
With their designated hitter and fourth outfielder issues solved, the Yankees are still on the hunt for a backup infielder according to Joel Sherman. They’re obviously looking for a guy that could handle shortstop and third base without a problem, plus someone who could outhit Ramiro Pena. That last part won’t be so difficult, Pena’s got a .223 wOBA this season.
The trade deadline is just over two hours away (4pm ET), but remember that deals can still go down in August after some waiver shenanigans.
