Jon Heyman tweeted earlier this morning that "Yankees people will at least discuss Kazmir, if they haven't already. Could use another lhp in pen."
Later, Alden Gonzalez of MLB.com also twat, "Cashman said he hasn't looked into the possibility of acquiring Scott Kazmir but will eventually. 'I know he's struggled,' he said."
It appears that they're at least a little interested.
While I don't believe he will help in any way, there's really little risk involved, so I guess it can't hurt. Give him a minor league deal and see if he can turn things around. But again, I wouldn't get my hopes up that he will. The guy was horrible last year and now he's completely lost.
What do you think? Should the Yankees take a chance on Kazmir?
