Yanks interested in Hafner

Yanks Interested in Hafner.


Reports have surfaced that the Yankees are interested in free agent Travis Hafner. He could possibly fill the role that Ibanez played in 2012. Hafner is a lefty power hitter, which is always useful in Yankee Stadium. Although he is primarily a DH, he could also fill in at first base every once in a while.

However, over the last 5 seasons, Hafner has only played over 100 games once, which occurred in 2010. So, staying healthy has been a problem. Even when healthy last season, Hafner only hit .228, with 12 home-runs and 34 RBI’s in 66 games.
