The Yankees are aiming to bring in a new third baseman by Wednesday’s 4 p.m. ET trade deadline. And they apparently have a specific target in mind.

From Danny Knobler of CBS Sports comes word that New York’s front office has “been in touch” with the Angels about a potential trade for 30-year-old infielder Alberto Callaspo. Knobler says the Angels “have made nearly everyone available, as they try to rework their roster for next year and beyond.”

Callaspo is batting just .252/.323/.348 with five homers and 36 RBI in 85 games this season for Anaheim, but Yankees third baseman have a combined .217/.276/.288 slash line and only four big flies.

Callaspo is making a $4.1 million salary this year and is owed a $4.875 million sum for the 2014 campaign.

    The Spankees want a new 3rd baseman, the sky is blue, and the feather-lice suck big donkey dick. Some truths are self-evident. The rest we adjudicate through pamphleteering!

      Angels – “and we’ll just go ahead and throw in Pujols and Hamilton as part of the deal”

        “and maybe sweeten the deal a little more with Joe Blanton…”

      He’s a better hitter but a crappy 3B.

    When you are stone broke, a $1.00 is a lot of money.

    Seems like the definition of too little, too late. This would be the equivalent of selling Wile E Coyote the tiny umbrella right before he falls off the cliff.
