The Denver Post has reported that the Yankees are interested in Colorado Rockies' pitcher Brian Fuentes.
The pitcher would be a great addition to a Yankees' bullpen that is currently lacking left handed options following the demotion of Billy Traber to AAA earlier this year.
Fuentes has been hard on left handed batters this season, limiting them to just a .118 batting average.
It's unclear what the Yankees would have to give up, but he would be a worthwhile addition to the New York bullpen if the deal is right.
In 25 games this season Fuentes has posted a 2.78 ERA, with six saves and 21 strikeouts..
In his career, he has appeard in 396 games with a 3.49 ERA and 419 strikeouts. He is 16-24 lifetime. Fuentes started his career in 2001 with the Seattle Marineers before moving to Colorado in 2002. He is a three-time All-Star and he played in the World Baseball Classic in 2006 for the U.S.
