While the New York Yankees are not close to acquiring an
outfielder at this point, the team continues to pursue a right-handed bat, with
the potential targets including Vernon Wells of the Los Angeles Angels and free
agents Scott Hairston and Jeff Baker, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.
Yankees not currently close on any trade talks for an outfielder; Texas was in the same position Friday.
