Wednesday night notes and links

Pretty quiet day. Here are a few notes…

• Although the Yankees are still in the market for another right-handed outfielder, Joel Sherman says Delmon Young is not in the picture. The Yankees don’t like his defense or his off-the-field issues.

• You know who else is not in the picture? Scott Proctor. He signed with the Giants.

• Following last week’s domestic dispute, Andruw Jones’ wife has filed for divorce. Sad situation for several reasons.

• Paul Hoynes reports that Nick Swisher could be officially introduced with the Indians tomorrow afternoon. I know, right!

• Speaking of the Indians. They claimed Russ Canzler off waivers just a few weeks after losing him on waivers. He has no connection to the Yankees whatsoever except that I mentioned him as a guy who might make sense for them as a right-handed power hitter who can play the corners. Would be nothing more than a depth move, but it really doesn’t matter at this point.

• Among the stories I read today as part of playing catchup from my vacation: My good friend Mark Feinsand did a terrific job with this touching story about radio engineer Carlos Silva who’s undergoing chemotherapy. Carlos is a very nice man. We wish him nothing but the very best.
