Former New York Yankee Star Johnny Damon makes plea to replace Injured Outfielder
Curtis Granderson Who is out until May.
Speaking on ESPN New York 98.7 FM's Michael Kay Show, Damon said he is willing to play just the five or so weeks of the regular season that Granderson will miss and he even would take a league-minimum contract to return to the Bronx.
"I know how the New York media works," Damon said. "I'm talking to you so I'm sure he'll hear about it tomorrow."
Reached by text shortly after the interview, Cashman didn't entirely rule out the possibility, writing that, "not at the moment" does he have interest in Damon. He added the team plans to "look at what we have."
With Granderson out, Brett Gardner will play center field and Ichiro Suzuki will be in right. The two leading candidates for left are Matt Diaz and Juan Rivera. The Yankees' top outfield prospects are not ready for the big leagues
