In a new report coming out of New York tonight, it looks like the New York Yankees are aiming to increase their hitting potential in the upcoming season. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the team is reaching out to not only Johnny Damon but also Carlos Peña to add to their roster.

Damon is not a stranger to the Yankees lineup. He played for the team from 2006 to 2009, mainly as an outfielder. However, he switched to a main position as a designated hitter with the Tampa Bay Rays for 135 games last season, along with 98 games in the role for the Detroit Tigers in 2010.

As for Peña, the man confirmed during a radio interview that he has been contacted by the New York Yankees, however he is still looking at all available options being presented to him. It is unknown at this point whether or not Peña would fill a first baseman or designated hitter role for the Yanks.

As of the time of this writing, there has not been an official announcement made regarding the addition of either man to the Yankees lineup.
