With Hideki Matsui and Mike Cameron joining new clubs, John Tomase and Michael Silverman of the Boston Globe report, according to a source, that the Yankees have been in touch with the Jason Bay camp to express interest in the former Red Sox outfielder.

The interest may not be strong, but they're keeping tabs on him nonetheless, especially with the Johnny Damon negotiations reportedly going slowly. Bay, 31, is said to be looking for a five year contract.
