Wang was hurt for most of this season and Mike Mussina retired after winning 20 games. Andy Pettitte remains in the mix, if he and the Yankees want to work out a deal for him to return. Ben Sheets and Jake Peavy were among the other aces that drew interest from the Yankees.
Burnett began his major league career with Florida in 1999 and joined Toronto as a free agent for the 2006 season. He is 87-76 overall with a 3.81 ERA.
