Yankees Interested In Wes Helms

The Yankees are showing interest in Marlins veteran Wes Helms, according to MLB.com's Joe Frisaro.  Helms initially signed with Florida when Joe Girardi was managing the club.

Helms' ability to fill in at third base, designated hitter, or pinch hit off of the bench is attractive to the Yanks.  The club could be keeping an eye on him as they have scouts on hand for the Marlins' weekend series at home against the Nationals.

In 124 plate appearances this season, Helms has posted a slash line of .243/.298/.391 with three homers.

If Helms, 34, does get traded, there is a strong possibility he could end up returning to the Marlins in 2011.  He is a free agent after this season and the organization is high on the veteran.
