Yankees Potential Trade Target: Byron Buxton

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton screams “risk”, but when healthy, he is an elite all-around performer. Center field may not be the Yankees’ most pressing need at the moment – shortstop comfortably tops that list – but it remains an area to address given the current lack of depth. Aaron Hicks is atop the depth chart, but as good as his elevated walk rate is for the lineup, he is risky for 2022 because he had a 76 wRC+ and only played a couple of months in 2021, losing most of the campaign with a wrist injury that...

These Yankees could benefit from playing some winter ball

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Aaron Hicks, Luis Severino, and Miguel Andújar have different backgrounds and situations, but playing over the winter could be beneficial for all three. Besides the obvious competitiveness and the experience, winter ball is usually seen as a good developmental step in a prospect’s career. Playing in front of fiery fans, having a platform to showcase/develop their skills and/or put some adjustments into practice are only a small sample of the benefits of playing during this time of the year. However, playing winter ball can also be...

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Aaron Hicks

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Add 2021 to the long list of injury-shortened seasons for the Yankees centerfielder. The Yankees entered 2021 hopeful that they’d get to see a fully-recovered Aaron Hicks for the first time since 2018. Although he played 54 out of 60 regular season games in 2020, it was only eight months post-Tommy John surgery. Thus, it was reasonable to be optimistic that his somewhat down year power-wise was due to not being fully fit, and another year removed from the procedure would bring him close to his days as a top AL centerfielder. Unfortunately, the...

Center field is suddenly a pressing need for the Yankees

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports In a span of 24 hours, the Yankees announced a flurry of roster moves, creating a depth problem in the middle of the outfield behind Aaron Hicks. On Thursday, the Yankees announced that longtime outfielder Brett Gardner had declined his player option, and the team did the same with his club option, making him a free agent. One day later, on Friday, the organization made it known that fellow outfielder Tim Locastro was claimed off waivers by the Boston Red Sox, and that Greg Allen will now play for the Pittsburgh Pirates after being claimed,...
