Rumor: Yankees Still Shopping A.J. Burnett
According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the New York Yankees are still shopping RHP A.J. Burnett but they are doing it quietly. The deal would likely be a salary dump to expand their budget.
The Yankees are looking to sign a Johnny Damon, Raul Ibanez or Hideki Matsui type player. However, the Yankees would probably have to eat more of Burnett’s salary. They are only offering to eat $8 million of Burnett’s $33 million.
