More Rumos. Yippee!

Yanks interested in Jose Guillen (ESPN Insider registration required)

The Yankees have an interest in Washington outfielder Jose Guillen, who has become expendable with the team's acquisition of Austin Kearns from Cincinnati, reports's Jerry Crasnick.

I'm not so hot on this, considering Guillen's antics that got him booted from Anaheim. If he's focused and ready, he's quite the player. He may be worth a small risk, but I wouldn't even bid as high as Tyler Clippard for him.

Did anyone else know Kearns was available, by the way? Looking at our outfield situation, he may have fit in nicely.

Thanks to John at Pinstripe Alley for the heads up.
