Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrelton Simmons

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: Luke Voit

Scott Taetsch-USA TODAY Sports The 2020 home run leader did not have a season to remember in 2021. Luke Voit began his Yankees career in 2018 as a midseason acquisition, catching fire after coming over from the Cardinals to help lead the charge into the postseason. He mostly held up to expectations the following year, getting derailed only by a core injury that depleted his strength at the plate for a few months, and rose to new heights in 2020 when he led the league in home runs — despite a nagging foot injury that was particularly evident throughout the final month...

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 Potential Trade Target: Matt Olson

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Matt Olson

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports The first baseman would be a strong fit. Based on how the 2021 season ended, the Yankees front office appears likely to make changes at first base at some point this offseason. Luke Voit lost the starting role due to injuries, then barely played after the team acquired Anthony Rizzo from the Chicago Cubs. That lack of playing time makes it seem unlikely that Brian Cashman feels comfortable going into 2022 with him as the starter there. A trade or free agent signing is probably on the horizon. There have been rumors that Rizzo would like to...

Yankees 2021 Roster Report Cards: Anthony Rizzo

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports After coming to New York at the trade deadline, Anthony Rizzo didn’t quite live up to expectations, but helped stabilize the play at first base. On July 29th, the New York Yankees traded Kevin Alcántara and Alexander Vizcaíno to the Chicago Cubs for Anthony Rizzo and cash considerations. Despite being a rumored target of the Boston Red Sox, Rizzo’s addition to the Yankees made a world of sense from New York’s perspective. Not only would he fill in for the frequently injured Luke Voit and be an automatic upgrade over the other...

NYY News: Hot rumors at the cold corner

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Matt Olson a realistic trade target; Several Yankee minor leaguers elect free agency; Brian Cashman confirms that the Yankees are likely to increase payroll this winter. SNY | Andy Martino: The Yankees’ first base situation is highly unclear entering the winter. Much more clear is the direction the Athletics are heading; Oakland is looking to reboot and shed payroll, and that means stud first baseman Matt Olson will likely feature on the trade market. Should the Yankees want a lefty replacement for Luke Voit, Olson would do nicely, and the team...
