Report: Yankees Expressing Interest In Pitcher C.J. Wilson

Wednesday November 16th, 2011

New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman met with Bob Garber, the agent for pitchers C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt, at Tuesday's annual GM meetings, according to ESPNNewYork's Wallace Matthews.  But Cashman was coy about what was discussed, saying, according to Matthews, "We spoke. In a non-descriptive fashion."

Garber was not so restrained.  According to Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger, Garber said that the meetings focused on Wilson, and that the Yankees have invited Wilson to New York to meet with Yankees director of pro personnel Billy Eppler and managing partner Hal Steinbrenner.

"I told him where we were at, they understood, and want us to come out," Garber said, according to Carig. "I think it's a good fit. We have a lot of teams we have to narrow down. I think the Yankees are a team that we've narrowed down as a team we want to spend a little time with."
