Cliff Lee remains their primary target this offseason, but it looks like Crawford is their clear no. 2 target in the event they don’t sign Lee. So far they have not been in contact with the other big free agent outfielder Jayson Werth.
Crawford seems to have a ton of teams interested in him and the whispers have been that he could sign for as many as eight years. That’s a pretty hefty contract so the Yankees probably want to been in the loop so that way if they don’t land Lee they don’t have to rush into making such a big decision.
