Yankees Rumors: Designated Hitter Wanted ... Cheap!

It has been pretty well-documented that the New York Yankees would like to add one more bat, a left-handed designated hitter type.

The Yankees have been linked to Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui and Eric Chavez as possible fits for that role. Even with Spring Training rapidly approaching, though, the Yankees appear content to wait out the market and let the price drop.

Joel Sherman of the NY Post reported that at most the Yankees would spend $2 million on a one-year deal, and might prefer to not even pay that much.

Sherman makes it sound as though the Yankees are not necessarily thrilled with any of the candidates, especially since they all come with health risks and with limited abilities to play in the field at this late stage of each of their careers.

It seems likely one of those guys will end up in the Bronx, but at the Yankees price.
