ph_433585According to Jerry Crasnick, the Yankees are among the teams that have checked on left-handed starter Jeff Francis.

In a free agent market that’s thin on rotation options, a risk-reward candidate like Francis might make some sense. It would be hard to count on him as a sure-thing, back-of-the-rotation starter, but he had some good years with the Rockies before shoulder problems started to kick in. If he’s healthy, he could help.

Of course, as with every Yankees rumor this winter, it’s hard to know whether the Yankees have real interest in Francis, or whether he’s simply part of Brian Cashman’s wide net.
