Jarrod Washburn Reportedly on Yankees' Radar

Ryan GaydosSenior Analyst IJuly 22, 2008

My New York Yankees are looking to add a lefty to their rotation. It has been said that the Yanks are looking to acquire Jarrod Washburn from the Seattle Mariners.

Washburn hasn't had a terrific season. He is currently 4-9 with a 4.75 ERA, but never fear, if Washburn is on a good team he probably will produce good numbers.

In 2002 when the Angels won the World Series, Washburn put up 18 wins and six losses. Washburn could gain some confidence with the way his team supports him. Right now Washburn is on a losing team that has the one of the worst records in baseball.
