Starting Pitcher: Yankees going for Super Rotation

In an on-air report for WFAN, SI.com’s Jon Heyman said the Yankees are now targeting both Derek Lowe and A.J. Burnett.

Heyman estimates the Yankees will offer Lowe a four-year, $68 million deal.

If the Yankees cannot sign Burnett, they will move on to Ben Sheets, on a two-year deal, and will likely pursue free-agent Andy Pettitte as well.

so, the Yankees could be looking at a rotation of CC Sabathia, Chien Ming Wang, A.J. Burnett or Ben Sheets, Derek Lowe and either Andy Pettitte or Joba Chamberlain…almighty then

According to Heyman, ‘The Phillies are still in the mix for Lowe,’ but he is ‘not an option for the Mets.’

Speaking of starting pitchers…

According to the East Valley Tribune, the Brewers, Rangers and Cubs are all interested in free-agent pitcher Randy Johnson, as are the Rangers, said Nolan Ryan to MLB.com.
