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.
