Yankees scouts bearing down on clubs with excess pitching


Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees have their scouts bearing down on teams that they believe will have pitching available during the summer. Those teams: the Cardinals, White Sox, Braves, Athletics, and Angels. We’ve covered every one of those teams at some point this winter except for the Braves, and there’s still plenty of time to do that.

This isn’t a surprise, of course the Yanks were going to have their scouts looking at teams with pitching. It’s good to see exactly what teams they’re focusing on though, and as long as it’s not Kyle Lohse, I’m cool with it.

    Please don’t tell me Braves = Lowe, or Angels = Kazmir.

  2. mike_h says:

    hoping Angels = Joel Pineiero, and yeah Braves probably means Lowe and White Sox probably means Buehrle. Also hoping Athletics means either Gio Gonzalez or Dallas Braden.

  3. MikeD says:

    The Cardinals have excess pitching?

      Mike’s wording, not Shermans’ or the Yankees’.

      “teams that they believe will have pitching available during the summer.” is what he meant. And yes, the Cardinals are part of that mix.

  4. Kawakami could probably be had for just money at this point.

  5. RobC says:

    what about the Reds?

  6. felixbanuelos says:

    Why aren’t the giants in this list? Jonathan Sanchez would be that great impact lefty to neutralize Boston

  7. CS Yankee says:

    When the Dodgers are 15 out in June…

  8. dayne says:

    maybe the angels will do something stupid like they did in the Well trade and make Harren available. Its just a dream but with the moces they ve made u never know.
