08:26 AM ET 01.17 | The Yankees have reportedly contacted free agent Hideki Matsui about a possible return to the Bronx as a DH. Matsui played last season for the A's, for whom he batted .251 with 12 homers and 72 RBIs last season. ... The Yankees reportedly also have interest in Johnny Damon, who is no longer wanted by the Rays. But a source tells NJ.com "nothing's going on as of now," and Damon on Monday had no comment when contacted by The Post. Carlos Pena, 33, told MLB Radio the Yankees had made contact with him, according to their Twitter account. The Yankees were expected to use Jesus Montero as DH, but he was traded to the Mariners last week in a four-player deal that included pitcher Michael Pineda.
