Yankees rumors: New York interested in Ricky Nolasco

Jason Arnold

The Yankees could look to trade for the Marlins right-hander.

We learned Wednesday that Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco may be the next Miami player to go in a trade, and now it seems he is drawing interest from the New York Yankees, reports Erik Boland of Newsday:

Nolasco could provide the Yankees a slightly cheaper and younger alternative to fellow right-hander Hiroki Kurdoa, who rejected New York’s qualifying offer and seems to be looking for a two-deal.

With Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson and Mark Buehrle out of the picture, the 29-year-old Nolasco is now the highest paid player on the Marlins’ payroll by a large margin, suggesting that the club will listen to offers for the right-hander. Nolasco himself seems to believe his days are numbered.

He declined comment when asked by Juan C. Rodriguez of MLB.com about the still pending "mega-trade" between Miami and Toronto, responding with the simple, "I’m next anyways". Rodriguez also states that the Colorado Rockies may be interested in acquiring Nolasco.
