With the need for starting pitching, the Yankees have turned their attention to LHP J.A. Happ. And as of Wednesday morning, the Yankees and Happ were reportedly close to a deal, according to Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.
However, Andy Martino of SNY mentioned the Yankees only have serious interest considering Happ has multiple offers. Martino added the Yankees are unsure if Happ will accept their offer, but are hoping he does.

Happ had 11 starts with the Yankees since being acquired at the trade deadline last season, going 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA and a 1.052 WHIP in 63.2 innings. He had one start in the postseason against the Boston Red Sox, in which he took the loss.
