Yankees rumors: Carlos Lee, Scott Rolen

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Yankees are on the hunt for a corner infielder, and Ken Davidoff of The New York Post says "anything is possible at this point."

The New York Yankees are on the hunt for a corner infielder, and Ken Davidoff of The New York Post says "anything is possible at this point." Included in that anything are free agent first baseman Carlos Lee and third baseman Scott Rolen, according to Davidoff.

It was reported last night that the Yankees will pursue a corner infielder via free agency and trade. New York will then have offseason acquisition Kevin Youkilis man whichever position - first or third base - isn't filled.

New York does have some internal candidates, including Juan Rivera and Matt Diaz. However, the club also has a vacancy in the outfield that will need to be filled since Curtis Granderson is going to miss the start of the season due to injury. The team has already said that Travis Hafner is not an option at first base.

Lee and Aubrey Huff are two veteran first basemen remaining on the free agent market. The issue with Lee, notes Davidoff, is that the slugger isn't interested in signing for a low base salary.

Meanwhile, Scott Rolen remains a possibility, though it remains to be determined if he'll play in 2013. And even if he does, Davidoff isn't convinced he's a good option considering his age and recent decline.
