Yanks, Red Sox After Mike Gonzalez

Dave Littlefield should be able to extract a solid young player or two if he wants to trade the Pirates' closer, Mike GonzalezGeorge King of the New York Post writes that both the Yankees and Red Sox are interested.

King believes Littlefield might ask for Scott Proctor and Melky Cabrera from the Yankees, while the Red Sox have dangled Coco Crisp.  Imagine Gonzalez as the lefty out of the Detroit pen.  Gonzo would also be a big help to the Indians, Rangers, Phillies, Cubs, or Giants.

Gonzalez, who turns 29 in May, was told by Pirates doctors just before Thanksgiving that he is completely healthy.  In 155 career innings, he has a 2.37 ERA, 6.7 H/9, 0.52 HR/9, 4.28 BB/9, and 10.58 K/9.  His control has been very shaky in recent years but his unhittable nature has compensated.
