It doesn't appear that there has been any movement in Johnny Damon returning to the Yankees, but his agent, Scott Boras, said that Damon is still interested in coming back.

"As Johnny has said he is more than willing to return to New York," Boras said.

The issue likely will come down to money. Damon would begin as a backup, if he were to sign with the Yankees. He would be mainly a DH/pinch-hitter with a chance to play some outfield. But he would mostly be insurance.

Damon probably won't sign until the end of the month or in February so this is something that is still possible, but not imminent.
