The New York Yankees outfield is thought to be set now with the re-signing of Ichiro Suzuki, but Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports that the team is "quietly interested" in free-agent center fielder Michael Bourn.

Bourn, largely considered the best center fielder on the market, has not received the influx of interest that analysts thought he would receive early on this winter.

An outfield of Bourn, Brett Gardner/Ichiro and Curtis Granderson would probably represent one of the fastest outfields in the majors, and the defense of Gardner and Bourn would represent a huge boost for the Yankees.

This would likely relegate Granderson to a corner outfield spot—a spot where he should have been for the past couple of seasons...
