Luis Ayala is currently a free agent and according to Jon Morosi of FOX Sports, there are rival Yankee teams looking for his services. Jon says that the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox have been interested in the reliever. Read that HERE. I have yet to read whether or not the Yankees have reached out to Ayala about an offer.

In 56 innings last year, Ayala had a 2.09 ERA. Not too shabby. Between he and Cory Wade, both Yankees really stabilized the pen and helped make it one of the more dominant bullpen's in baseball.

With all the talk about starting pitching, and so many youngsters making their way up from the minors, I'd be curious to see if the Yankees let Ayala walk, after all, there is a lot of new talent ready to come up and take over a role in the pen, plus, you need to believe that Joba Chamberlain will be healthy by next season to really be a driving force in the bullpen for the Yankees. We will keep an eye on Ayala for you.

Please comment, we have DISQUS, it's easier than ever. Let me know what you think and follow me on Twitter @BleednYankeeBlu and join the group Bleeding Yankee Blue on Facebook, just type it in.
