Yankees manager Aaron Boone said the Yankees are "working real hard" to acquire a starting pitcher this offseason, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com.
Boone noted that he has been in communication with 37-year-old CC Sabathia, who went 14-5 with a 3.69 ERA in 27 games for the Yankees this past season. The veteran southpaw has posted an ERA below 4.00 in back-to-back seasons.
WFAN's Sweeny Murti reported that the Yankees have "high" interest in Michael Fulmer and Tigers GM Al Avila said multiple teams are interested in him.
Among other topics discussed, Boone also higlighted his new relationship with some players on the team. The Yankees' new skipper has been texting with Gary Sanchez and plans to meet with him in New York after the winter meetings, Hoch reports.
