The Yankees were trying to trade Johnny Damon all season, but with no suitors found at the deadline, the Yankees are set on show-casing him for the rest of the season and then dumping him to a team for prospects. Damon has not been the same player since he left the Red Sox, and although he had a decent first year with the Yankees, he is now batting .251 with 6 HR. Teams will probably look at Damon as a fallback option after missing out on players like Jermaine Dye, Kosuke Fokudome, and Torii Hunter.
