Joel Sherman of the Post reports that, according to a National League executive and an agent, the Yankees have been in touch with Reed Johnson's representatives.

Sherman says the team could see Johnson as a versatile option in the outfield, where he has spent significant time at all three positions. He can hold his own against left-handed pitchers, as his .313 (AVG)/.378 (OBA)/.463 (SLG) line against them for his career demonstrates.

Johnson is one of three outfielders, along with Xavier Nady and Jonny Gomes, who stands out to Sam Borden among available outfield candidates.
