Trying to find out for himself if he had a chance to be the team's DH, Johnny Damon called Yankees GM Brian Cashman on Saturday.

Cashman told Damon he is not the Yankees' first choice.

The team expects to sign Raul Ibanez after the A.J. Burnett deal is finalized. Burnett is taking his physical with the Pirates Sunday.

Cashman said he would not have talked about the private conversation with Damon, but Damon told the New York Post about it.
