The Yankees have expressed interest in free agent reliever Brandon Lyon, according to Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports. The writers note that the Yankees "likely will express interest in all of the top available late-inning relievers, if they haven't already." The duo says the Yankees have to sort through many different rotation scenarios before deciding whether to sign relievers.
Lyon, a Type B free agent, was offered arbitration by the Tigers today. They'll get a supplemental draft pick if Lyon signs elsewhere. The righty's goal is to ink a multiyear deal coming off a season in which he posted a 2.86 ERA in 78.6 innings.
