In Search For An Outfielder – New York Yankees

So far, we have identified the following outfielders as possible targets for the Mets:

                Atlanta – Reed Johnson
                Arizona – A.J. Pollock
Baltimore – Nolan Reimold
                Boston – Jerry Sands
                Chicago Cubs – Brett Jackson
Chicago White Sox - Dayan Viciedo
Cincinnati – Chris Heisey
                Cleveland – Thomas Neal -
                Colorado – Dexter Fowler
Detroit – none
Kansas City – none
Los Angeles Angels – Mark Trumbo
Los Angeles Dodgers – Alex Castellanos
Miami Marlins – Gorkys Hernandez
Milwaukee Brewers – Khris Davis
Minnesota Twins - None
Pittsburgh – Jose Tabata

We now move on to the New York Yankees, who currently have seven (7) outfielders on their 40-man squad:

                Zoilo Almonte – switch –  pre-ARB -   AA: 419-AB, 21-70
                Chris Dickerson – lefty –  ARB-1/2014 – MLB, 14-AB – AAA: 266-AB, .316
                Ramon Flores – lefty –  pre-ARB -  A+:   517-AB, .302
                Brett Gardner – lefty – $2.85mil-2013,  ARB-3 – MLB, 31-AB  -
                Curtis Granderson – lefty – $15mil-2013, FA-2014 – MLB,596-AB, 43-106
                Melky Mesa – righty –  pre-ARB -  MLB, 2-AB -  AAA: 126-AB, .230
                Ichiro Suzuki – lefty - $6.6/mil – 2013 & 2014 – MLB – 227-AB, .322

The Yankees are looking for the same thing the Mets need, a strong hitting right handed hitting outfielder.

It looks like 3B Eduardo Nunez will be the 2013 DH.

The resigning of Suzuki to a two year deal teams him up with Granderson, but the departure of Nick Swisher now has the Yankees bidding against the Mets for who is left out there.

Mets target:  None
