Rob Bradford of WEEI.com hears that the Yankees might be close to a deal with free agent designated hitter Travis Hafner.

If signed, Hafner would project as the team's primary designated hitter against right-handed pitching. The 35-year-old batted .228/.346/.438 with 12 home runs and a .784 OPS in 66 games with the Indians last season while battling knee and back injuries.
