The New York Yankees reportedly continue to talk with free-agent relievers Zach Britton and Adam Ottavino, and could possibly land both pitchers, according to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal.

The 33-year-old Ottavino would give the team a right-handed power arm in the back of its bullpen to complement lefty closer Aroldis Chapman and Dellin Betances, who's scheduled to hit free agency after the 2019 season.

The Yankees appear to have some stiff competition for Ottavino, as he's been linked to the Boston Red Sox and Chicago White Sox.

Meanwhile, Britton reportedly wants a four-year deal and is believed to have multiple offers on the table.

New York is in need of bullpen help after losing out on David Roberston, who recently signed a two-year contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Britton registered a 3.10 ERA and 1.23 WHIP over 40 2/3 innings between the Yankees and Baltimore Orioles last season. Ottavino posted a 2.43 ERA with a sparkling K/9 rate of 13 in 77 2/3 innings for the Colorado Rockies in 2018.
