Yanks Keeping an Eye on Michael Wuertz

From George A. King III:
With the prospects of reliever Alfredo Aceves (back) not returning this year getting smaller and Chan Ho Park struggling, the Yankees are monitoring what the A's do with Michael Wuertz, a right-handed, slider-throwing freak.

The A's aren't hot to deal him but if they do, the Yankees and other teams will be interested.

Wuertz, who was outstanding last year (6-1, with a 2.63 ERA and 4 saves), has had a rough 2010. In 23 games the 31-year-old right-hander is 2-1, with a save and a 5.71 ERA. In 17.1 innings he's allowed 11 earned runs on 20 hits, walked 10, and struck out 13.
