The Yankees have shown interest in free agent utility player Josh Harrison, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports.
The 31-year-old Harrison mostly played second base this past season, which SNY's Chris Carelli has noted is an area of need if Yankees GM Brian Cashman passes on free agent Manny Machado and instead shifts 2B Gleyber Torres to shortstop in Didi Gregorius' absence.
Harrison, a two-time All-Star and eight-year Pirates veteran, has been linked to the Yankees in past trade rumors.
Pittsburgh opted not to pick up his $10.5 million option for the 2019 season, but he is still a solid defensive second baseman.
He could also potentially fill in at third base for Miguel Andujar.
Harrison played in 97 games this past season -- his lowest total since 2013 -- due to a hand injury. His .250 batting average was also his weakest number since 2013. He finished the 2018 season with eight home runs and 37 RBI.
