Vernon Wells might become the latest addition to the New York Yankees’ injury-depleted lineup.As the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 7-6 in 10 innings Sunday behind a pair of Kevin Youkilis home runs, New York was negotiating with the Los Angeles Angels to acquire the outfielder.Wells lives in the Tarrant County area and was a high school standout at Arlington Bowie.A person familiar with the negotiations, speaking on condition of anonymity because talks were ongoing, said the sides had not yet agreed to the money that would be included in a trade. Wells is owed $42 million over the next two seasons.Yankees general manager Brian Cashman declined comment. Before the game, Cashman said captain Derek Jeter was likely to join Alex Rodriguez, Mark Teixeira and Curtis Granderson on the disabled list at the start of the season.The Angels are set in the outfield with Josh Hamilton, Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos, and have designated hitter Mark Trumbo available as a backup. Wells, 34, would have to waive a no-trade provision to go to New York.Wells would take over in left field while Granderson is recovering from a broken right forearm and join an outfield that includes center fielder Brett Gardner and right fielder Ichiro Suzuki. Wells is owed $21 million in each of the next two seasons as part of the $126 million, seven-year contract he agreed to with Toronto in December 2006. Los Angeles would have to agree to pay most of the remaining money.Wells hit .230 with 11 homers and 29 RBIs last year and has just 36 homers and 95 RBIs in two seasons with the Angels. He is batting .361 in spring training this year with four homers and 11 RBIs in 36 at-bats.Briefly • Astros: Ronny Cedeno tripled hours after signing with Houston, who beat Miami 4-1 Sunday in a game shortened to 4 1/2 innings because of rain.
