Yankees, Wilson head toward meeting in NY

The Yankees pursuit of starting pitching appears to be gaining momentum. Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reportedly reached out to Bob Garber, who represents both C.J. Wilson and Roy Oswalt, according to Marc Carig of the Star-Ledger.

Carig reports that Cashman and Garber spoke at the GM Meetings in Milwaukee, and that a sit down with Hal Steinbrenner and director of pro personnel Billy Eppler in New York may be in the works.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post later added that a meeting could occur before next month’s Winter Meetings.

“I told him where we were at, they understood, and want us to come out,” Garber told the Star-Ledger. “I think it’s a good fit. We have a lot of teams we have to narrow down. I think the Yankees are a team that we’ve narrowed down as a team we want to spend a little time with.”

Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York indicated that Cashman is not rushing negotiations, but that Garber was receptive to the GM’s outreach.
