Saying he's "just starting the process," Yankees general manager Brian Cashman reached out to the agent for C.J. Wilson on Saturday.

Cashman described the call as part of a "slow process" and said he's "reaching out to all agents" representing players on the market. The general manager said no offer was made to Wilson's agent, Bob Garber.

Wilson, 30, is considered the No. 1 major league free agent pitcher on the market. The left-hander went 16-7 with a 2.94 ERA this past season, though he struggled at times in the postseason.

Wilson's agent told ESPNNewYork's Andrew Marchand on Friday that Wilson and his gregarious personality would "thrive" in New York.

"He is one of those guys, who would fit in there very well," Garber said. "He would fit in most places pretty well. New York, I think he would thrive in a city like that.

"His No. 1 priority is that he wants to play for a winning team. The Yankees have as good or better a reputation of that than anybody. It is very early in the process. We’re just waiting and sitting back to see how it plays out."
