This may be the least likely signing to happen right away because the Yankees would probably prefer to deal for a younger, controllable starting pitcher that can be a long-term building block for their rotation. At the same time, however, last we heard, New York was one of four MLB clubs described as “in full pursuit” of Hill by ESPN’s Jim Bowden.
The Yankees’ rotation is the area of their roster that stands out as being most in need of improvement. Hill is the only starting pitcher on the market who reasonably has the potential to be a front-of-the-rotation guy. Unless the team wants to deal from their stocked farm system, Hill is literally the only game in town for them if they want to upgrade.

With so many teams in need of starting pitching this winter, Hill may be best served waiting around to see if anyone gets desperate and offers him a fourth year or something nuts like that. He’s definitely in the driver’s seat this winter despite all the other question marks surrounding him, so I could see him taking his time and seeing what pops up.
