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.
