NEW YORK (AP) -- The Yankees are speaking with the agent for free agent Travis Hafner and may try to sign the 35-year-old to compete for time as a left-handed designated hitter.
Hafner spent the past decade with Cleveland and hit .228 with 12 homers and 34 RBIs last year. He would take over a role filled last year by Raul Ibanez, who left the Yankees to sign with Seattle.
Because of knee and back problems, Hafner played in only 66 games last season. The Indians declined a $13 million option, electing to pay a $2.75 million buyout.
