Yankees have talked about Marlon Byrd; nothing close yet

More MLB: Deadline news | Power Rankings | Latest news & notes | Fantasy news

The Yankees have talked to the Phillies about Marlon Byrd, though nothing is close yet.

The Yankees would like to add a bat and have also talked about Josh Willingham, among others. They do not appear to be in on Alex Rios at this time.

Byrd does not have the Yankees on his no-trade clause, but the Yankees don't seem to love the $8 million salary for next year.

There also may be some doubt as to whether his personality is a good fit for the team.
