Yanks show interest in Wigginton

The Yankees have expressed interest in trading for the Orioles’ Ty Wigginton, according to the Newark (N.J.) Star-Ledger. Citing a baseball official, the newspaper reported that the Yankees are one of several teams to inquire on the versatile Wigginton, who started his Major League career across town with the Mets.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has identified improving the bench as a priority leading into the July 31 non-waivers trade deadline. The 32-year-old Wigginton could provide a right-handed bat with pop, while representing an offensive upgrade over Yankees bench infielders Kevin Russo and Ramiro Pena.
