Derrek Lee Newsbeat
Monday, March 11, 2013
Sure, Richie Sexson would listen if the Yankees called.
With few obvious options available to replace the injured Mark Teixeira at first base, the Yankees are becoming creative in their search. They have asked the retired first baseman Derrek Lee whether he would come out of retirement, according to a person with knowledge of the talks who asked to remain anonymous.
As of Sunday night there was no deal pending, the person said, but Lee was interested and the situation could always be revisited.
Lee, 37, last played in the major leagues in 2011 for the Baltimore Orioles and the Pittsburgh Pirates. Despite being hit by a pitch that broke a bone in his left wrist, Lee had a decent season, batting .267 with 19 home runs in 113 games.
for his generous support.
