From the Post -
Yankees fans may be tired of watching Scott Proctor and Kyle Farnsworth pitch ineffectively for their team, but that hasn’t stopped other major league clubs from being interested in the erratic right-handers.
According to talent evaluators from AL and NL clubs the Yankees and Devil Rays are moving closer to a deal that would send Proctor to St. Petersburg for utility infielder Ty Wigginton.
“The Devil Rays really want him,” the source said of Proctor, who may be converted into a starter for Tampa Bay. “The problem is that other teams want him, too.”
The Dodgers, who had a scout watch Proctor pitch an inning in Wednesday night’s 9-4 victory over the Royals at Kauffman Stadium and were on hand again last night when the red-hot Yankees attempted to bag a four-game sweep, have an interest in bringing Proctor back to the organization where he started his professional career.
“He didn’t pitch very well [Wednesday] but at least he had his fastball,” the scout said of Proctor, who wasn’t with the team Monday and Tuesday in order to be in Florida for the birth of his son, Cooper.
I’ve mentioned that Wigginton brings some things to the table. But, now, with Giambi coming back, where would Ty fit in on this team? How much playing time would he get? Is that worth the cost of losing Proctor’s innings?
It’s almost as if the Yankees are looking at Wigginton with something else in mind…like to play third next season? Nah, that can’t be it, can it?
