While the New York Yankees have the ability to sign free
agent Kyle Lohse, general manager Brian Cashman doesn’t think it would make “any
sense” to acquire the right-hander, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.
“I don’t think it would make any sense whatsoever,” Cashman
said. “We have all of our pitching intact. Our problem is not our pitching.
Pitching is our strength.”
Rosenthal notes that the Yankees have the flexibility to
sign Lohse and trade one of Ivan Nova or David Phelps for the offense “they so
desperately need.” In order to make this leap of faith, New York would have to
believe Lohse will be better than a No. 4 starting pitcher in the American
League. The Yankees would also need to feel confident that they can get a
quality hitter in exchange for Nova or Phelps.
Beyond Nova and Phelps, the Yankees currently four other
rotation candidates – including C.C. Sabathia, Andy Pettitte, Hiroki Kuroda and
Phil Hughes. Michael Pineda is recovering from surgery and is expected back at
some point this season.
While they have a surplus of starting candidates, New York
will start the regular season without several starting position players –
including Mark Teixeira, Alex Rodriguez and Curtis Granderson.
