While New York is full up in the outfield, no winter would be complete without New York talking to all the top available free agents. Crawford, the top position player on the market, is expected to wait out Cliff Lee's signing as it could impact his own market.
Should the Yankees fail to sign Lee, the scuttlebutt has then turning to Crawford instead. They could shift one of their outfielders to a backup role, or more likely, swap the player for a starting pitcher.
You also can't rule out both Crawford and Lee signing with New York, but it's not known whether the Yankees have the resources to import both.
