Is this another Rafael Soriano situation?
Jon Heyman is reporting tonight that Hal Steinbrenner has met with agent Scott Boras, and the two discussed the possibility of the Yankees signing Edwin Jackson.
Obviously the Yankees are still looking for rotation help, and Jackson is one of the best starters — if not the best starter — still on the market. The Yankees have obviously been reluctant to spend big this winter, and a Jackson deal only seems likely if he’s willing to accept a short-term contract.
It’s worth noting that another Boras client, Ryan Madson, just settled for a one-year deal with the Reds.
