Yankees turned down meeting with free agent C.J. Wilson

There have been plenty of reports about the Yankees’ lack of interest in C.J. Wilson and now Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York writes that they don’t even want to meet with him.

Marchand reports that Wilson’s agent requested a meeting to discuss the free agent left-hander and “the Yankees said no.”

That doesn’t preclude them from signing Wilson, of course, but unless general manager Brian Cashman has nearly every media member in New York tricked about the Yankees’ intentions the odds are very, very slim.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
