The Yankees are nearing a deal that would send Steve Pearce from Houston to New York, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports (on Twitter). Pearce, who played for the Yankees' Triple-A team earlier this year, would provide New York with a right-handed bat for the final month of the season.

Andruw Jones has been struggling lately and Raul Ibanez has all but 1 hit since the middle of August. Pearce was in the Yankees organization before, so I am not surprised that they still like him and will give him a shot. At the very least he’s a right handed bat.
Steve Who??? Come on Cashman, this the best you can do while the ship is sinking?
Dodgers and Orioles took all the good players available.
