Yanks Could Target Arms

Bryan Hoch at MLB.com talked to Yankees GM Brian Cashman, who acknowledges that "there is a [pitching] depth issue that is real." Cashman says the Yankees "aren't at all focused" on a bat before next week's trade deadline.

As Hoch notes, there are a number of factors that could force Cashman's hand: Chien Ming-Wang is potentially out for the season, and top choices to slide into the rotation like Alfredo Aceves and Phil Hughes have instead found successful roles in the bullpen. Additionally, Joe Girardi reminds that Joba Chamberlain could face an innings cap, having pitched over 95 this season.

Who might make sense to patch up the Yanks' depleted pitching depth? Have at it in the comments.
