    Though Brian Cashman still insists that he’s not looking to an additional outfielders to make up for the absence of Brett Gardner, CBS’ Jon Heyman reports that they have, in fact, had discussions about outfielders currently on the market, and are currently more interested in adding an outfielder than pitching. According to Heyman the Yankees have had discussions regarding both Shane Victorino and Justin Upton, though they aren’t happy with the current asking price for either.

    For what it’s worth, I don’t see the logic of Victorino right now, unless the Yankees are certain that Gardner is going to miss most of the rest of the season. Victorino isn’t playing particularly well right now, hitting a mere .245/.311/379, which translates to a WRC+ of 93, and is owed the balance of his $9.5 million salary for this year before he becomes a free agent at the end of the season. Considering that the Yankees have been able to have success with Raul Ibanez and Andruw Jones/Jayson Nix in left field, I don’t see the logic of giving anything up to get Victorino.

    Andy Pettitte won’t be eligible to return any earlier than August 27th after being placed on the 60 day disabled list with a fractured ankle, but his rehab seems to be going well, with the old lefty telling ESPN New York that the break was “50 percent closed up,” according to doctors. Pettitte still isn’t able to run on the injured ankle, but he is riding a stationary bike, working in the pool, and throwing off of flat ground, which is positive news. Pettitte hopes to return to the Yankees’ rotation by September 1st.

    Why do you say there is bickering? I just see it as a difference of opinion. As to Moncada, I wonder if the Yankees are targeting more than him in the

    Cashman doesn't need any excuses as it appears he has the complete confidence of his owner which is why, he'll be the Yankees GM for 20 years after this
