With outfielder Brett Gardner likely out for the season with upcoming elbow surgery the Yankees “are in on everybody,” a source told CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman.

The Yankees have reportedly inquired into Shane Victorino of the Phillies, Justin Upton of the Diamondbacks and Denard Span of the Twins.

Philadelphia may shop Victorino or let him leave and collect a draft choice when the season ends. If the Phillies are willing to part with Victorino before July 31, Heyman reported the Yankees would be interested.

It seems unlikely Upton will land with the Yankees and a  source told Heyman the Twins are asking for a lot in return for Span.

This season Victorino, who has played seven of his eight years with Philadelphia, is batting .253 with 38 RBI. Arizona’s Upton is batting .274 for 41 RBI while Span has a .276 batting average and 29 RBI.
