The last we heard, the Yankees were still looking to deal and were specifically looking for an infielder who would be an upgrade on Ramiro Pena and a way to help their bullpen, even if it meant acquiring a starter so they can move Phil Hughes to the pen.

Here is the latest:

Ken Rosenthal reports that the Yankees are still calling teams to find a cheap bullpen option. They are still looking for that bench piece as well.

Rosenthal also reports
that the Marlins are not going to trade outfielder Cody Ross . They are also not expected to trade infielder Wes Helms to the Yankees, as the sites can’t match up.

Buster Olney heard
that the Yankees are done pursuing LHP Ted Lilly . If the price drops low enough, that could change.

Nothing so far on Cubs infielder Ryan Theriot .

The deadline is at 4:00 pm EST, keep checking back here as we will have the latest all afternoon.
