While Brett Gardner is set to undergo surgery on his right elbow that is likely to end his season, according to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com is reporting that the New York Yankees have no interest in Rick Ankiel, who was designated by the Washington Nationals yesterday, or Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Juan Pierre:

When it comes to outfielders, the Yankees will have one veteran option available this summer. Darnell McDonald, who was designated to make room for left-hander CC Sabathia, has cleared waivers and was assigned to New York’s Triple-A affiliate.

While the Yankees have been tied to outfielders recently given Gardner’s unknown status, the club has also been connected to starting pitching. One of those starters, Houston Astros left-hander Wandy Rodriguez, isn’t even on New York’s radar, according to Marc Carig of The Star-Ledger.
