FanHouse: Yankees interested in Wigginton

Adam Dunn wasn’t the only potential trade target to be linked to the Yankees today. Orioles infielder Ty Wigginton, the team’s most productive player this year, is on the market and the Yankees reportedly ‘have some interest.’

Unfortunately for the Orioles, it seems Wigginton has put his best months of the year behind him. He followed up a great April and May with an awful June. Through 48 games, he had 13 homers and 32 RBIs with a .288/.369/.565 hitting line. In June, he’s hit one homer, drove in 10 runs and batted to the screeching tune of .209/.303/.291.

Still, he has great versatility and would be dramatic improvement over any of the other current bench options for the Yankees. He’s also priced at just $3.5 million in the final year of his contract.
