Yankees Rumors: Stayinig in Contact with Carl Crawford 10

The Yankees have called free agent outfielder Carl Crawford presumably to keep themselves in the loop, according to Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated.

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.
