Olney: Wigginton Might Make Sense For Yankees

Buster Olney wonders if the Yankees will make a run at Baltimore’s Ty Wigginton with Alex Rodriguez’ hip being a concern.

Right now, the Yankees have greater focus on improving their offense than on their pitching. With Alex Rodriguez banged up and getting days off at third base, you do wonder if they’ll hedge their bets before the trade deadline and look for a bopper who can play third — like a Ty Wigginton (although the Yankees and Orioles almost never make trades) or Miguel Tejada or Jeff Baker.

I like the Wigginton idea if the Yankees feel they need a better bat as protection against A-Rod’s health.
