Yankees rumors: New York won’t pursue Johnny Damon

Free agent outfielder Johnny Damon has said he’d be very open to a reunion with the New York Yankees. However, general manager Brian Cashman told reporters, including Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York, yesterday that the Yankees will not pursue Damon.

"He's just not going to fit our needs," Cashman said. "It's the same reason we didn't bring him in last year. We need somebody who can play the outfield every day."

Damon hadn’t personally reached out to the Yankees following Granderson’s injury, but Cashman did acknowledge that he received a text from the veteran’s agent, Scott Boras, gauging the team’s interest in his client.
