Yanks Interested In Kazuo Fukumori

31 year-old Japanese reliever Kazuo Fukumori is drawing plenty of interest - 10 teams have inquired, if you believe his agent.  A new interested party has been revealed - the Yankees.  They met with Alan Nero on Wednesday.  Fukumori wants a two-year deal.

Ken Davidoff's article says the Padres and Rays are also in the mix.  The Nationals, Royals, and Red Sox are others who have been connected.  The Rockies will pass on Fukumori because of concerns over his elbow.  East Windup Chronicle profiled Fukumori here.  A scout Davidoff talked to saw him as a sixth or seventh inning guy; he didn't seem thrilled.
