The Yankees are interested in left-handed closers Zach Britton and Brad Hand, reports Jon Heyman of Fancred.
The news of the Yankees' interest in the closers came as current closer Aroldis Chapman deals with what manager Aaron Boone says is recurring knee tendinitis.
Britton has pitched scoreless outings in eight of his 10 appearances with the Orioles this season after recovering from an achilles injury.
Since beginning his 2018 campaign on June 12, Britton has allowed six earned runs in 9 2/3 innings. He allowed four runs in 1/3 of an inning against the Braves on June 22, then allowed a pair of runs in one inning against the Mariners on June 27.
The 30-year-old Britton has a 5.59 ERA/5.49 FIP and 1.552 WHIP this season.
Hand, the Padres' closer who was an All-Star last season, has a 3.05 ERA/3.26 FIP and 1.089 WHIP in 39 relief appearances this season.
