Rumors were that the Yanks are looking to upgrade the bench. Bill Hall was a target, but the INF-OF signed with Houston. The Yanks could be looking at a trade for Jeff Keppinger, who hit .288-6-59 for the Astros (OPS+ 105) this year. He is a .281 career hitter and could be a better alternative than good field/no hit Ramiro Pena. They may also be looking at bringing back Jerry Hairston, Jr.
The deal between Dennis Reyes and the Phils fell through. The lefty reliever is back on the market.

Heard this from two sources: With the Jenks signing, BoSox payroll is actually higher than NYY. But the Yankees still have moves to come.
