 TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Chipper Jones in a New York Yankees' uniform?
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman expressed interest Monday in the retired Atlanta Braves star as New York tries to shore up an injury decimated roster.
``He'd be perfect,'' Cashman said. ``I'd take Larry in a heartbeat. I think everybody would.''
Cashman added he didn't think the 40-year-old Jones, an eight-time All-Star during 19 seasons with the Altanta Braves, will have any interest.
New York is missing third baseman Alex Rodriguez, sidelined until at least July following hip surgery, and first baseman Mark Teixeira, out until May because of a strained tendon in his right wrist.
If Jones could slot in at third, Kevin Youkilis would shift over to first.
Cashman also said that he has talked to 37-year-old Derrek Lee, who hasn't played since 2011, when he hit .267 with 19 homers and 59 RBIs for Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Lee, a first baseman, appeared to be intrigued by the situation.
``Nothing ventured, nothing gained,'' Cashman said.
