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.
Sheets supposedly wants somewhere around $11 million or $12 million a year, which he isn't likely to get from anyone.

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.
