Yankees hot for Cuban emigre

Although probably not the one you're thinking of. According to Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportes LA, 18-year-old Cuban lefty Gerardo Concepcion is about to declare free agency and the Yankees -- along with the Texas Rangers, Philadelphia Phillies, and both Chicago teams -- are said to be interested.

As for Yoenis Cespedes, a team source tells me today that although the club likes Cespedes and considers him an impressive physical specimen, they are not willing to pay the price for a player who does not yet appear to be major-league ready.
