Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrelton Simmons

Photo by Ed Zurga/ Andrelton Simmons would make a serviceable utilityman for a number of ballclubs ... so why in the world does it seem like Brian Cashman is considering him for Yankees’ starting shortstop? As is stands right now, the Yankees’ infield is far from complete. Assuming the team does not make a single move over the rest of the winter — not likely, but this is just a hypothetical — the Yankees currently have Luke Voit at first base, Gleyber Torres at second, third baseman Gio Urshela at shortstop, and second baseman DJ LeMahieu at third base.

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Gio Urshela

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Gio Urshela

Photo by Adam Hunger/ Urshela’s regression at the plate in 2021 creates another problem the Yankees must solve this winter. The story of the Yankees’ disappointing 2021 season was offensive underperformance almost across the board. Guys like DJ LeMahieu and Gleyber Torres get the bulk of the attention, though Gio Urshela isn’t blameless when it comes to the team’s offensive malaise. His regression in 2021 not only hurt the team this year, but creates a new set of problems going forward. Grade: C- 2021 Statistics: 116 games, 442 PA, .267/.301/.419, 14 HR, 49...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Anthony Rizzo

Photo By Winslow Townson/ Anthony Rizzo checks off several boxes for the Yankees, but there’s much more for the team to consider before making an offer. As the Yankees roster currently stands, there isn’t a player on it who the organization or fans would be comfortable naming as the everyday first baseman entering 2022. The keywords are “every day”, because although Luke Voit he clearly can hit, he’s only been available for 62 percent of the team’s games since 2019 due to numerous trips to the IL. DJ LeMahieu could make for a league-average singles hitter as...

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: DJ LeMahieu

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ DJ had a disappointing 2021 season, but exactly how disappointing may be open for debate. My unprofessional sociology opinion is that Yankees’ fans seem to focus on topics that carry wide ranges of opinions and much disagreement. Yet one item I can safely say everyone around the Yankees, both within the organization and among fans agrees upon, is that DJ LeMahieu’s 2021 season was a disappointing one. At a cursory glance, the discussion may appear to be simple, but there are some perspectives and issues that make grading his performance a bit...
