We are in the month of May and although New York Yankees They are in the fight for the pennant of the East Division of the American League, they are beginning to suffer from injuries of their important players.
The troop that leads Aaron boone needs an outfielder after losing Aaron Hicks to wrist surgery that ended his 2021 season. Also, the team will have to figure out a starter who can cover Corey Kluber, who will be out for at least two months, for a shoulder injury.
With those holes in the roster and the fragile Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge are, Cashman must be “aggressive” in the next trade deadline of the season. MLB, according to the opinion of journalist Jim Bowden of The Athletic.
According to the analyst, Cashman should target players like Cedric Mullins of the Baltimore Orioles, Ketel Marte of the Arizona Bells or sensation outfielder Adolis Garcia of the Texas Rangers.
Getting any of those players will not be economical for the Yankees. However, the organization has enough prospects to standardize the chosen one. The names of Oswald Peraza, Austin Wells and Estevan Florial could serve as a bargaining chip.
If the Yankees do not want to part with those three values, they could put on the table members of their current roster such as: Clint Frazier, Mike Ford or Miguel Andújar, who have enough courage to make a trade.
As for the rotation, the New York team could focus on a trade for Luis Castillo from the Cincinnati Reds mainly. If not, Kevin Gausman of the San Francisco Giants or German Marquez of the Colorado Rockies could be talent options for your starting pitching.
With the addition of an outfielder and a starting pitcher, the Yankees would put themselves in position to return to the World Series this season and go for the championship they haven’t won since 2009.
