NEW YORK -- In the midst of revamping their beleaguered bullpen, the Yankees are close to sending right-hander John Habyan to the Chicago Cubs for left-handed reliever Paul Assenmacher. Sources indicate the Yankees have agreed to pick up Assenmacher's entire $2.58-million yearly salary, which could be the final hurdle to a deal.Assenmacher, 32, has been steady but unspectacular during his Cubs and Braves tenures and is 2-1 with a 3.53 ERA in a set-up role this year. Yankees general manager Gene Michael and the Cubs' Larry Himes have discussed for weeks a trio of Chicago's left-handed relievers, the others being Chuck McElroy and Dan Plesac.
