The New York Yankees are hoping to add another bat to their lineup this week. It seems as though it has come down to Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui or Raul Ibanez to share time with Andruw Jones as the designated hitter.
Buster Olney reported that a deal could be done this week.
Ibanez might be the frontrunner at this point, but if Damon or Matsui lower their price, it could force Brian Cashman to make a decision.
All three players were participants in the 2009 World Series. Damon and Matsui were members of the Yankees and Ibanez was a member of the Philadelphia Phillies.
To Yankee fans, it would be an appealing idea to be reunited with Johnny Damon or Hideki Matsui. It would certainly benefit the Yankees to have one of the two men back on the team.
Three men in contention and only one spot left on the Yankees. Let's take a look at the potential candidates to join the Yankees.
