The New York Yankees have a need at shortstop and have already been in touch with several of the biggest names on the free agent market.

It's been reported that the Yankees are planning to focus their financial resources on other needs rather than shortstop because prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza are just a year or two away from the Major Leagues.

A second report states that New York is less participating in the shortstop market than they are "monitoring" the situation and "waiting to see if a market collapses, in which case they might still swoop in to try to sign one."
