The Yankees have admitted they’ve been scouring the second base trade market, but they’ve also said the pickings were slim. With that said, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is reporting the Yankees have no interest in Diamondbacks second basemen Aaron Hill.
The Yankees have stuck with Stephen Drew despite an abysmal season offensively, crediting Drew’s exceptional defense at second and shortstop for their hesitance to trade. The Yankees could also recall Rob Refsnyder to the majors, which is also the reason the Yankees are extremely reluctant to trade for another second basemen.
Hill is hitting .221/.294/.326 in 75 games this season for the D-Backs.
