NEW YORK (WFAN) – The Yankees have been reluctant to pull the trigger on any big-money pitching contracts this offseason.

Is that about to change?

WFAN’s Jon Heyman reports high-powered agent Scott Boras met with Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner on Wednesday “to discuss a potential deal” for starter Edwin Jackson.

Jackson’s original asking price was reportedly five years at over $50 million.

According to the Newark Star-Ledger, Wednesday’s meeting was held at the request of Boras. The Yankees also have interest in starters Roy Oswalt and Hiroki Kuroda, reported Heyman.

The 28-year-old Jackson has gone 60-60 with a 4.46 ERA over nine seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Tampa Bay Rays, Detroit Tigers, Arizona Diamondbacks, Chicago White Sox and St. Louis Cardinals.

How much should the Yankees offer Jackson? Sound off below…
