The Yankees have been searching for outfield help, but the New York Daily News reports that because they missed out on Mark DeRosa does not mean the club will seek expensive options (like Matt Holliday or Jason Bay).
A Yankee official told the Daily News (before the DeRosa deal was made), "No chance on Matt Holliday, no chance on Jason Bay.... Zero. None. Underline it."
The Yankees are thinking of much cheaper free agent optionslike former Blue Jay and Cub Reed Johnson or Jerry Hairston Jr. Or, Brett Gardner could have a chance to compete for a role there. They will also troll the trade market.
