Having acquired Lance Berkman and Austin Kearns this past weekend it would appear the Yankees wouldn't have room for Jose Guillen.I doubt this is going to happen, but you never know. In 106 games this year he's hitting .255/.314/.429 with 16 HR and 62 RBI.
Nevertheless, the Yankees aren't shutting the door on acquiring the much-traveled 34-year-old outfielder who was designated for assignment yesterday by the Royals. They have 10 days to deal Guillen or release him.
Two weeks ago a Yankees official said there was no interest in Guillen, who told teammates at Yankee Stadium that he was close to becoming a Yankee. Now, the Yankees will track Guillen, who is expected to clear waivers since he is owed roughly $3.9 million for the remainder of this season.
