08:17 AM ET 12.28 | The addition of veteran Matt Diaz apparently won't keep Brian Cashman from seeking even more depth for an outfield that, if the season started today, would include Brett Gardner, Curtis Granderson and Ichiro Suzuki as its starters. The Yankees had no interest in keeping Nick Swisher, who signed a four-year, $56 million deal with the Indians. The Yankees still have an interest in signing another outfielder and remain interested in Scott Hairston. Diaz, who turns 35 in March, is a lifetime .291 hitter. He struggled last season, batting .222 with two home runs in only 108 at-bats because of a right thumb injury that required surgery. He has had thumb issues for several years, dating back to a backyard injury at his Lakeland, Fla. home.

If the Nats sign LaRoche then Morse would be available and a good pick up for the Yanks.

I'd be surprised if we win the division again this year, and even that hardly matters when we get so convincingly spanked in the league championship.

no thank you

Totally agree. These are just one year blunder options. It appears Andruw Jones hit his wife more consistently than he did the baseball last year. They will love him in the Land of the rising Sun..

There must be some mistake. Hairston's only 32. Yankees don't want those youngsters.

Michael Morse: isn't he the tall pudgy guy who always wears a Detroit cap?

only through a trade mode, because the yankees aren't allowed to sign a long term contract with no one no exceptions!!

with such little free agents availability the yanks are confuse and disorient!!!

Finally the Yanks are about to make a huge splash in the free agent market. They have lain in wait under the radar and then BAM!! Hairston!

Cashman appears to be searching for some divine guidance in that photo.

Why? He'd be a good addition to the bench and a huge upgrade over Andruw Jones. He hit 20 HRs last year playing at Citifield and had a .863 OPS against lefties. He's also only in his early 30s and can play multiple positions.

Hairston would be a good addition without breaking the bank, who's Morse?

Michael Morse from the Nats.

Dream on, Yankees fans. What do you have that the Nationals would want?Several teams would want Morse just as badly, and probably have more prospects to deal.

Yeah, the nats hold all the cards, ha!
This is a move for a 4th OF or platoon player. I doubt they trade anything for that.
