• The Yankees are not interested in Ricky Nolasco, but they are scouting the Marlins. They have a lot of young prospects plus and, of course, Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton is not on the market, but Logan Morrison might be. They also have Justin Ruggiano and Placido Polanco that could be a help to the Yankees.
• The Orioles designated Russ Canzler for assignment on Saturday. Sherman says the Yankees could have interest if he becomes a free agent. Canzler is hitting an amazing .415/.531/.815 in 82 plate appearances against lefties in Triple-A this year. Wowza.
• Manny Ramirez signed a minor league deal with the Rangers which kills the slim, remote, and way off base speculation that the Yankees could sign him.
