Via MLBTR, the Yankees have expressed interest in free agent lefty reliever J.C. Romero. The 34-year-old spent the last three-plus years with the Phillies, but he’s battled elbow and back issues over the last two seasons. He’s also walked (42) more guys than he’s struck out (40) since 2009, and lefties have gotten him to the tune of a .362 wOBA during that time. Given the injuries and declining performance, I sure hope the Yanks don’t sign him. At least not to a guaranteed contract, anyway.
