Thursday rumors: Jays in on Damon
The Jays, who could use a leadoff hitter, expressed their interest Thursday in Johnny Damon. GM Alex Anthopoulos however, told fans at a team event, “I dont want to get your hopes up.”
Former Rays OF Rocco Baldelli has been mentioned as a possibility for the Yankees (even after the signing of Randy Winn, though perhaps on a minor-league deal), and he may have another option in Texas.
And Jonny Gomes, who also is being mentioned in New York, could end up back in Cincinnati after all, as he has yet to get a better offer and the Reds have yet to replace his power.
