Yankees After George Sherrill?

Nice find by RotoWorld – at the bottom of this Bergen Record article, there’s mention of the Yankees’ interest in southpaw reliever George Sherrill.

Presumably, Sherrill would be a backup plan if the Yanks can’t acquire Mike Gonzalez.  From what I hear, there are still a handful of teams involved on the Pittsburgh reliever. 

Sherrill has an interesting stat line that doesn’t seem repeatable – fewer than seven hits per nine, zero home runs in 40 innings, a 4.28 ERA despite six walks per nine.  If used as a strict LOOGY, though, he should be pretty good.
