According to Buster Olney of ESPN, the Yankees want 1B/RF Garrett Jones in any trade involving RHP A.J. Burnett. The Pirates, however, are reportedly not interested in parting with Jones. Jones, 30, hit .243/.321/.433 (107 OPS+) across 477 plate appearances in 2011.

The Yankees know that they would have to eat most of the money owed to Burnett ($35M in total) in order to move him, tweets Olney.
