Bob Nightengale of USA Today has the scoop on the Yankees’ reliever search …
The #Yankees would love to grab two relievers and have had lots of internal discussions about Joaquin Benoit

Benoit registered an exceptional 2.01 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 73/22 K/BB ratio in 67 innings this past season with the Tigers, but he was awful in the postseason and he turns 37 years old in July, so the asking price shouldn’t be astronomical. The Yankees have the impossible offseason task of replacing Mariano Rivera.
