Despite acquiring Todd Frazier and moving Chase Headley to first base, the Yankees remain open to acquiring a first baseman, reports Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
The Yankees, who were scouting the Mets on Monday night at Citi Field earlier this week, reached out to the Mets shortly after to express interest in 1B Lucas Duda earlier this week, reports Mark Feinsand of MLB.com.
Duda, 31, is hitting .246 with a .352 OBP and .552 SLG with 17 home runs in 69 games this season.
He is eligible for free agency after the season.
Mets GM Sandy Alderson said July 14 that he's not opposed to trading with the Yankees, despite the two teams not connecting on a player-for-player big-league deal since swapping Mike Stanton for Felix Heredia in 2004.
