According to the New York Post's George King , the Mariners are expecting the Yankees to be among the bidders if they shop left-hander Cliff Lee before the deadline.
Lee was traded to Seattle in the offseason and is in the final year of his contract. The Mariners hoped to contend and convince Lee to sign long-term, but with their season in the ditch they will almost certainly opt to cash him in. Lee is making $9 million this season.
A source told King the Mariners have been scouting the Yankees' minor league system extensively and will ask for shortstop Eduardo Nunez and a catcher.

UPDATE: The New York Daily News says the Yankees are not interested in adding a starter, according to a team source.
