Yanks on verge of getting Vernon Wells from Angels

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Vernon Wells is on the verge of becoming the latest addition to the New York Yankees’ injury-depleted lineup.

New York neared an agreement with the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday to acquire the 34-year-old outfielder, who has slumped since hitting 32 homers with 106 RBIs for Toronto in 2006.

“It’d be a huge change. I don't think it’s ever easy saying goodbye, but at the same time, if this were to happen, it’s a good group of guys over there,” Wells said in Tempe, Ariz. “I’ll just get to know a new family.”

A person familiar with the negotiations, speaking on condition of anonymity because talks were ongoing, said the sides were bargaining over the money that would be included in a trade. Wells is owed $42 million over the next two seasons, and the Yankees anticipated they would end up being responsible for about $12 million to $13 million of that total.

Yankees general manager Brian Cashman  said captain Derek Jeter was likely to join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the disabled list at the start of the season.
