Sweeny Murti of WFAN has reported that the Yankees have discussed signing Los Angeles Angels closer and long-time MLB reliever Jason Grilli.
With 2014 closer David Robertson turning down a one year qualifing offer from the team, they are looking to the market to see if there is another viable closing option available. Grilli was not lights out for the Pirates last season, prompting his trade to the Angels. While in LA, he pitched much better, posting a 3.48 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and a 36:10 K/BB ratio, while collecting one save and 11 holds in 33.2 innings.
