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. On top...

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...

NYY news: Yankees Mulling Mullins

Photo by Cole Burston/ Orioles listening on Cedric Mullins; Didi Gregorius option as stopgap; Non-tender deadline looming; Josh Breaux left unprotected; Post-mortem on Gleyber Torres’ 2021 season NESN | Jenna Ciccotelli: Yesterday, it was reported that the Orioles were willing to listen to offers for their star centerfielder Cedric Mullins, and Ciccotelli identified the Yankees as one of the teams that could be interested. Mullins broke out in a big way last season thanks largely to his decision to forgo switch-hitting, instead focusing solely on batting lefty. The...

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Gleyber Torres

Photo by Sean M. Haffey/ For the second consecutive season, Gleyber Torres certainly wants to put this year behind him. Following a down year in the COVID-shortened 2020 season that saw his power dry up and his defense suffer, Gleyber Torres came into 2021 looking to remind everyone in his age-24 season why he was once a top-five prospect in all of baseball. Instead, he took his 2020 struggles to new heights, ultimately losing his spot at the starting shortstop and putting his Yankees future in question. Grade: D 2021 Stats: 127 G, 459 PA, .259/.331/.366, 9 HR, 51 RBI,...

How did Gleyber Torres and the Yankees get to this point?

Torres won't be the Yankees' shortstop next year, and he might be off the team entirely.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Corey Seager

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Corey Seager

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports The Yankees have a hole at shortstop and could use a lefty bat. Corey Seager is one of the best shortstops in the league, and he hits lefty. It’s a match made in heaven. With Gleyber Torres’s inability to handle the position and the team’s decision to designate Tyler Wade for assignment to create room on the 40-man roster, the Yankees have exactly one player on the roster who they feel even remotely confident playing shortstop — third baseman Gio Urshela. Fortunately, the timing could not be better for Brian Cashman, as this...

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Rougned Odor

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Odor proved his reputation as a flawed, inconsistent hitter is accurate, but he also recorded a number of go-ahead runs and was highly entertaining to watch in 2021. In early April, the Yankees traded for Rangers infielder Rougned Odor in a deal that saw Texas absorb nearly all of the $27 million still owed to Odor as part of the six-year contract extension he signed with the club in 2017. Despite being a gratis addition to the roster, the trade didn’t make a ton of sense at the time. The Yankees already had two second basemen in Gleyber Torres...

This offseason seems like the perfect opportunity to address that hole, with a star-studded free agent shortstop class headlined by Carlos Correa and...
These shortstops could be Yankees long-term solution at position

These shortstops could be Yankees long-term solution at position

Considering the team gave up on Gleyber Torres at shortstop in mid-September, it is pretty obvious.

Evaluating the defense of the Yankees’ potential shortstop targets

Evaluating the defense of the Yankees’ potential shortstop targets

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports As the Yankees look to fill the infield’s most important position, the three top options have quality bats. But what about their fielding abilities? The New York Yankees will shop for a new shortstop this offseason. General manager Brian Cashman recently confirmed that Gleyber Torres will play second, so the organization will try to find a replacement in the upcoming weeks and months. This year’s free agent shortstop class is filled with talent, and the Yankees may try to bring one star, even though top prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald...
