MLB - Scoop Du Jour

You can never have enough pitching depth, even if you're the World Series champion New York Yankees with a rotation that'll have C.C. Sabathia(notes), A.J. Burnett(notes), and Andy Pettitte(notes) taking the mound on successive days.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman has apparently been following closely a number of pitchers this off-season, including of course the Toronto Blue Jays' Roy Halladay(notes).

Two of the hurlers that Cashman seems interested in are Ben Sheets(notes) and Justin Duchscherer(notes), both of whom didn't pitch in 2009, according to the New York Daily News.

Sheets supposedly wants somewhere around $11 million or $12 million a year, which he isn't likely to get from anyone. Meanwhile, Duchscherer's agent has reportedly heard from a dozen teams about the pitcher who had elbow surgery and then clinical depression. The word is that the agent is allowing teams to talk to Duchscherer's therapist to be sure he's ready to get back into the bigs.
