The New York Yankees are eyeing a deal for former Red Sox reliever Joel Hanrahan in an attempt to bolster their bullpen, reports CBS Sports.

Hanrahan is on the mend following a disastrous 2013 season in which he was limited to just 7 1/3 innings with the Red Sox before being shut out.

He later had Tommy John surgery and is continuing his rehabilitation with the Yankees and the Mets both watching his bullpen sessions.

The former All Star has pitched to a 3.85 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 2.23 K/BB ratio throughout his career and could be a good addition to the line-up at the Yankee Stadium.

Officials at the Yankees remain concerned at their thin bullpen and are concerned that their improvements in other areas could be undermined by that very fact.

The Yankees are also rehabbing Andrew Bailey, signing him to a minor league contract and could offer the same deal to Hanrahan.
