Wigginton for Proctor?

The NY Post is reporting that a source has stated the Rays would trade utility man Ty Wigginton to the Yankees for set-up man Scott Proctor. Apparently the Yanks would fill Proctor's absence with a promotion of prospect Joba Chamberlain, the Rays would likely roll with Josh Wilson at second base.

Proctor, 30, has had some control issues this year, 29 walks in 52 innings after only walking 33 in 102 innings last season, but his 3.63 ERA would still lead the Rays bullpen, and would still be under team control for the next four seasons.

Wigginton meanwhile would start at first base for the Yankees.
