Rumor: Yankees still looking for a right handed outfielder

The Yankees may have signed Juan Rivera and Matt Diaz and missed out on Scott Hairston, but they are still on the look out for more right handed hitting, GM Brian Cashman recently told Jim Bowden of ESPNxm.

That’s great and all, but there really isn’t much left on the market. Perhaps Cashman means he’s still looking to deal, but based on their interest level in outfielders that have been traded so far this offseason we certainly shouldn’t expect Cashman to make a move for a big name.

If anything it’ll be something along the lines of Adam Warren or David Phelps being dealt for a guy similar to Juan Rivera and Matt Diaz, but with fewer health, age, and performance question marks.

Of course, finding a right handed hitting outfielder is necessary because the Yankees outfield currently consists of three left handed hitters — Ichiro Suzuki, Curtis Granderson, and Brett Gardner.
