David Wells A Possibility For Yankees?

Mike Puma of the New York Post has comments from free agent lefty David Wells and Hank Steinbrenner indicating a third tour with the Yankees is possible.  Boomer's interest is obvious, while Steinbrenner seems intrigued.  Before Brian Cashman gets involved and discussions occur, the Yankees will see how Darrell Rasner and Kei Igawa fare.  Wells had some choice words for Joe Torre, so don't expect him back in L.A.

How does Wells stack up with Rasner and Igawa, according to Baseball Prospectus' PECOTA projection system? 

Wells - 4.80
Igawa - 5.15
Rasner - 5.24

Not much of a difference in the projected ERAs, but Wells would be a fun story.  He managed to make 29 starts last year, but at 5.4 innings per he'd definitely give the bullpen a workout.  Then again, Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy were averaging about four.  Fun fact - Roy Halladay is averaging 8.14 innings per start this year.  Only Halladay and C.C. Sabathia averaged more than seven innings per start last year.
