The Lance Berkman trade isn’t even official yet and the word is that the Yankees are already moving on. According to both Buster Olney and Jack Curry, the Yankees are working on other deals and expect to make at least one, maybe two, more trades.

What else are the Yankees looking for? Well, they’ve added a full-time DH, but they still need an outfielder that can hit lefties. The ideal person would be somebody who can start in left field so the Yankees can move Brett Gardner to center and sit Curtis Granderson against tough lefties.

They also are still in search of some bullpen help. It doesn’t appear that there has been anything going on with the Blue Jays, but the Diamondbacks’ Chad Qualls is one name that has been mentioned.

Infield help could still be had as well. Berkman can play first base, but they could still use somebody to spell third baseman Alex Rodriguez every couple of days. Ramiro Pena currently has the job, but he’s nearly an automatic out.

Really, the only thing the Berkman trade changes is that it removes Washington Nationals outfielder Adam Dunn from consideration.
