Found November 01, 2012 on PRO Rumors:
The New York Yankees are interested in veteran outfielder Torii Hunter according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. He adds that since the Angels are unlikely to offer Hunter a qualifying offer he wouldn't cost the Yankees a draft pick. Back in September, we learned that Hunter wanted to stay in Anaheim, but with a crowded outfield the Angels are probably going to let him go. In five years in Anaheim, the 37-year old Hunter hit .286/.352/.462 with 105 HR's, 432 RBI's and a 122 OPS+ in 2,993 plate appearances.
