The New York Yankees are reportedly searching for outfield help in the wake of the serious injury sustained by Curtis Granderson on Sunday. And one former Bronx Bomber, who currently remains a free agent, says he would accept a second stint with the team if they offered.That former player is none other than Johnny Damon."I don't expect to hear from them," Damon told the New York Daily News by telephone. "If they call, if they want me, I'll go. They are one of the only teams I would do that for. We'll see what happens in the future. If someone calls, I could definitely get ready."The 39-year-old veteran suited up for the Pinstripes from 2006 to 2009 and helped guide New York to a World Series title in his last season with the franchise. He has since played for the Detroit Tigers (2010), Tampa Bay Rays (2011), and the Cleveland Indians (2012).A career .284 hitter, the two-time All-Star still believes he can play on an everyday basis“I can still hit,” Damon said. “I still know I’m better than 70-80 percent of the guys out there. I know if I played every day, I’d be really good.”Granderson is expected to miss 10 weeks after breaking his arm when being hit by a pitch thrown by Toronto's J.A. Happ on Sunday.Damon appeared in only 64 games for the Indians last season while posting a .222/.281/.329 slash line with four homers and 19 RBI.He boasts 2,769 hits, 1,139 RBI, 522 doubles, and 408 stolen bases for his 18-year big league career, which began in 1995 as a member of the Kansas City Royals.Via New York Daily News
