With the loss of Brett Gardner to a broken thumb, the Yankees are in need of another player capable of manning centerfield. According to Joel Sherman, the team is eyeing recently DFA'd outfielder Corey Patterson (Natinals) after Danny Knobler of CBS Sports already reported that the Yanks are interested in Josh Anderson (Tigers).
Both players are blessed with speed and not much else, although Gardner has proven The Balls wrong all season. Looks like Shelley Duncan will remain stuck in Scranton no matter how many home runs he hits or how hard he mashes right handed pitching.
On a separate note, with the trade deadline looming, I implore you all to check out MLB Trade Rumors. It would be pretty asinine to assume that you are coming here for all of your baseball news, so head over to MLBTR as Friend of The Balls Tim Dierkes and the guys do an amazing job of compiling all of the rumors flying around every two-bit paper in our great nation.
