Yankees Remain Unlikely To Pursue Ortiz

Nov 13, 2011 4:35 PM EST

The Yankees scored the second-most runs in the American League this past season, so they'll focus on pitching this offseason.

"I'm interested in shoring up our starting rotation," Cashman said. "We have a great team on the offensive side. I don't feel there is a need to make any changes there.

"Our biggest priority now is pitching," he reiterated. "We'll see how the rest of the winter goes, how our conversations shake out with other clubs, trade stuff, but as of right now, our focus is on pitching."

That, in turn, suggests that the Yankees are unlikely to get involved in the bidding for designated hitter David Ortiz.
