Aurilia interested in coming home

Rich Aurilia is a Brooklyn boy and, despite struggling to be productive and healthy last year, he’s hoping for a homecoming with either the Mets or Yankees.

“We know nothing is imminent, but hopefully we keep in contact with them,” Aurilia told the San Jose Mercury-News. “It’s just been preliminary, but they said there could be some interest down the road. So I’m concentrating more on just making sure my body is ready. I still have the desire to compete and play. I can contribute. I’ve been throwing, swinging the bat and actually feel pretty good.”

Even if the Yankees do take a flyer on Aurilia and invite him to spring training, it sure doesn’t look like he’s got much left: He’s 38 years old and coming off a season in which he hit .213 with two homers and 16 RBI in 122 at-bats.
