Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Jameson Taillon

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Jameson Taillon

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Should the Yankees pursue a reunion with Taillon for 2023 and beyond? Going into 2023, the Yankees almost have a potential initial five-man rotation locked into place. Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, and Luis Severino are obviously all locks as long as they’re healthy. While Frankie Montas had a poor run after the Yankees acquired him at the deadline, he’s still almost certainly going to start next season in the rotation. However, that leaves a fifth spot open. Sure, there are pitchers currently in the Yankees’ organization that they could put...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Chris Bassitt

Photo by Dustin Satloff/ The Yankees can balance depth with upside in going after the ex-Met. The Yankee rotation is in kind of a funny spot. Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes, and Luis Severino offer one of the best top threes in the game, but you’d be forgiven for being worried about any of them. Cole has had his performance warts, Cortes is coming off his biggest workload ever, and Sevy carries injury concerns. Although the ceiling for the rotation is high, it wouldn’t be a bad idea by any stretch to bolster the depth. Having said that, I’m never a fan of depth-only...

Yankees 2022 Roster Report Cards: Luis Severino

Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports Through injuries and a touch of inconsistency, Severino reminded the world what he’s capable of. What If? When the history of the Baby Bomber Era gets written, that’s what the title ought to be, because that’s the question I can’t help but repeatedly ask whenever looking at the team over this past six years. What if Greg Bird never tore his labrum in 2015, derailing his once-fearsome swing? What if Gary Sánchez did not suddenly find himself unable to hit pitches over the heart of the plate after the 2019 season? What if Jackson...

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Pablo López

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Pablo López

Photo by John Fisher/ The Miami starter was the subject of trade rumors at the deadline. Could New York revisit him? With the 2022 season in the books, the Yankees need to leave no stone unturned in their efforts to improve the club, especially after Houston emphatically displayed its superiority over New York in the ALCS. With Jameson Taillon a free agent, an innings limit likely looming for Luis Severino in 2023, and Frankie Montas ineffective and then hurt after coming to the Bronx, shopping for starting pitching on the trade market seems a logical way to try and...

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kodai Senga

Photo by Koji Watanabe/ One of NPB’s best arms is headed to MLB. The Yankees rotation has carried a rather underwhelming lineup the last couple of seasons, balancing the flashes of sky-high ceiling Gerrit Cole and Nestor Cortes with depth performances from guys like Jameson Taillon. The always-alluring potential of Luis Severino adds to the upside of the rotation, but with Taillon hitting free agency and question marks about full-season use of depth guys, the Yankees could stand to add one more arm. If they go that route, NPB frontliner Kodai Senga probably gives the...
