According to ESPNNewYork.com, New York Yankees' general manager Brian Cashman says he contact CJ Wilson's agent and is reaching out to him to get the Texas Rangers pitcher on his squad.

Cashman said the call is part of a "slow process" and has not made a deal yet with Wilson's agent, who is Bob Garber.

The 30-year-old Wilson is coming off a solid season with, going 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA. Wilson is one of the most popular players on the free agent market and one of the top pitchers, and New York is definitely trying to acquire him.

"He is one of those guys who would fit in there very well," Garber said. "He would fit in most places pretty well. New York, I think he would thrive in a city like that.

"His No. 1 priority is that he wants to play for a winning team. The Yankees have as good or better a reputation of that than anybody. It is very early in the process. We're just waiting and sitting back to see how it plays out."

Garber is also representing Philadelphia Phillies pitcher, Roy Oswalt, at the moment, too. The 34-year-old Oswalt, however, struggled, going 9-10 and a 3.69 ERA. Along with that, he had back issues, which is why the Yankees may not go after him.

A lot of great guys on the market. We'll see who New York is going after.
