It appears they aren’t stopping there either.
Buster Olney of ESPN confirmed this when he reported last night that the Yankees weren’t done and were still searching for an upgrade for their backup third baseman.
Theriot, 30, is primarily a shortstop, but he also has experience at second and third base, although his experience at third base is limited to a handful of games back in 2006 and 2007. Because of that inexperience, the Yankees will likely look around for a better option before trying to workout a deal with the Cubs.
It seems like the Yankees would be interested in landing Lilly as an alternative to upgrading their bullpen. They have been searching for pen help, but so far the prices for reliever are ridiculous with the Blue Jays asking for either Joba Chamberlain or Jesus Montero for their reliever Scott Downs . So instead, they would add Lilly and likely move Hughes to the bullpen.
