The word has been that the candidates for the DH spot have been free agents Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui and Raul Ibanez. Well, throw another name into the hat. It isn't clear how much interest the Yanks have, but 37-year-old Vladimir Guerrero, who spent last season batting .290 and hitting 13 homers for the Baltimore Orioles, "has made it known to the Yankees that he wants their DH spot," according to ESPN. The way the site sees it, though, Ibanez is "still the frontrunner" for the position.
Ibanez batted .245 with 20 homers while playing left field for the Philadelphia Phillies last season.
