The Yankees are looking to add one more starting pitcher this offseason, with free agent J.A. Happ on the list. But there is plenty of competition for the 36-year-old.
The Angels, Astros, Blue Jays, Brewers, and Phillies are among the other teams that have interest in Happ, according to MLB.com's Jon Morosi.
While Happ is on the Yankees' list to round out their rotation after re-signing CC Sabathia and trading for Seattle ace James Paxton, fellow free agent Patrick Corbin is their most likely target, with Dallas Keuchel also in the mix, according to SNY's Andy Martino.
With Sabathia re-signed and Paxton on board, they join a rotation that is expected to include Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka.
Happ, who pitched well for the Yankees this past season after being acquired from the Blue Jays, could get a deal worth roughly $26 million for two seasons, predicts FanCred's Jon Heyman and one baseball expert.
