The Yankees, who are a team that is battling injuries, appear to be going after a coveted White Sox outfielder via trade. While nothing is official yet, it isn't surprising that the Yankees are trying to acquire some proven, veteran talent. A report from Sports Talk Chicago Live says that the Yankees are interested in White Sox outfielder Alex Rios. Are the #Cubs waiting to long to trade players before the deadline? #SportsTalkChi #CubsTalk — SportsTalk Live (@SportsTalkCHI) July 15, 2013   The level of interest is unclear at the moment, but the fit makes sense. The Yankees are missing prized outfielder Curtis Granderson and have an aging outfielder in Ichiro Suzuki, so adding a player like Rios makes sense. In Rios, the Yankees would be adding a five tool player who can hit for power, score runs, knock in RBI's, steal a base and hit for a decent average. If Rios does end up going to the Yankees, they would have very good outfield of Granderson-Rios-Ichiro. While Granderson is hurt, he is aiming to return later this month. On the year, Rios is hitting .270 with 11 home runs, 40 RBI's, 19 stolen bases and 46 runs. While the Yankees would not have the youngest outfield, they would still have a very talented one that would help them try to capture the AL East title.
