As the trade deadline for the 2011 season approaches, the New York Yankees "are watching everyone, focused on no one," according to Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger. Still, it's no secret that general manager Brian Cashman and the rest of the organization are looking to add pitching.
More specifically, the Yankees seem to be looking for left-handed pitchers who are only signed through 2011. Cashman is, according to Daniel Barbarisi at The Wall Street Journal, "up for the incremental upgrades, or the significant upgrades." He also goes on to say, "I'm not afraid of a waiver claim. I'm not afraid of a guy with an opt-out. I'm not afraid of a guy who all odds are against."
With Bartolo Colon, Phil Hughes, Pedro Feliciano and Rafael Soriano all on the disabled list, the Yankees are desperate to add talent to both their starting rotation and their bullpen.
Let's see the possible additions before the trade deadline.
