The New York Yankees are interested in free-agent reliever J.C. Romero, according to major-league sources.
Romero's among the top left-handed relievers on the free-agent market. Injuries have limited him to 53 1/3 innings the past two seasons, but he has a 3.38 ERA during that span.
The 34-year-old has spent the past four seasons with the Philadelphia Phillies. He was a key part of the bullpen during their 2008 world championship season.
