The Yankees likely don’t like any of the starting pitchers still on the free agent market except for Andy Pettitte. That means they are going to likely have to deal to bring in a starter or two. If the season started today, Ivan Nova and Sergio Marte would be the Yankees’ #4 and #5 starter and that just isn’t good enough. The Yankees might have interest in dealing for pitchers like Francisco Liriano, Scott Kazmir, Paul Maholm, Barry Zito, Fausto Carmona, Derek Lowe or Joe Blanton. Liriano & Carmona would probably take multiple top prospects but the other guys can probably be had for pennies on a dollar so look for the Yankees to make a deal for a starting pitcher or two before spring training starts. They are also likely in the market for a backup outfielder that swings from the right side. In free agency, Scott Hairston, Andruw Jones or Reed Johnson could be a fit.
