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."
