According to MLBDailyDish.com, the New York Yankees are somewhat keen on Twins' outfielder Josh Willingham:
Willingham-to-the-Yankees deal would make plenty of sense. For one, his contract is reasonable; he makes $7 million this season before becoming a free agent this offseason. The Twins are also likely eager to get rid of him given the team's last-place standing in the AL Central and the risk of failing to re-sign him in the offseason.
The Yankees have been buying low on players that can help once elevated out of their current situations. Third baseman Chase Headley, who was floundering in San Diego, was flipped to New York for a low-A pitcher Rafael DePaula, who profiles will in the bullpen, and rookie third baseman (and former Twins farmhand) Yangervis Solarte. Getting Headley out of the spacious Petco and into the tight-fitting Yankee Stadium should do wonders for his numbers. Before that, Brian Cashman and the Yankees nabbed starting pitcher Brandon McCarthy, who was at 3-10 with a 5.01 ERA, from the Arizona Diamondbacks for marginal pitching prospect Vidal Nuno. Since putting on the pinstripes, McCarthy is 209 with a 1.45 ERA and a 17/3 K/BB ratio in 18.2 innings.
The moral of the story here is that the Yankees are likely to present the Twins will little in return for Willingham.
