The RAB Radio Show: December 17, 2010

Yankees looking at Jeff Keppinger
Yankees claim Jordan Parraz off waivers

The Yankees have nabbed their lefty. This morning we learned that Pedro Feliciano will join the team in 2011 and 2012, pending the results of his physical exam. We discuss how he fits with the team.

Then we move on to what could be Cashman’s next move, which is to upgrade the bench. It’s not a necessity, but it’s something they can afford to do now. The Astros just signed Bill Hall to play second base, which should make Jeff Keppinger available. We take a look at how he could help the team.

Could the Yankees expand the conversation to include Wandy Rodriguez? He’s a lefty with a good strikeout rate, and he reaches free agency after next year. I’m not sure the Astros would be so hot to trade him, but if they’re willing to listen I’m sure Cashman will make a pitch.
