Yankees Not Close To Landing Third Baseman

The Yankees aren't getting very far in their search for a third baseman, sources tell Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (via Twitter).  The Marlins still expect that the Bombers will ramp up their interest in Placido Polanco, but the Yankees aren't too keen on that idea at this point.

The Yankees have been linked to Phillies third baseman Michael Young, but things have cooled off on that front.  Young isn't expected to OK a deal to anyone except for the Rangers and even then, the Phillies seem more focused on working something out with the Red Sox than the Yankees. 

As for Polanco, we heard this morning that the Marlins were gauging interest in the third baseman along with outfielder Juan Pierre.  Polanco is hitting just .259/.315 /.301 on the year.
