The Yankees continue to have talks with the Dodgers about Wilson Betemit, and talks are showing progress. However, the Dodgers are talking with the Royals about Octavio Dotel, the Rangers about Eric Gagne, and the Cubs about Michael Wuertz, so acquiring a reliever from the Yankees seems unlikely. The Yankees may be looking to trade Scott Proctor and maybe package him with a minor leaguer or two to acquire Betemit. This season, Betemit is batting .238 with 10 HR and 26 RBI.
