If Judge leaves, the Yankees ought to strive to replace him with a player whose name is equally well-known or who they could consider to be bigger. Shohei Ohtani is that player. Additionally, in order to guarantee that Ohtani plays for the Yankees for the remainder of his career, they will need to sign him to a sizable agreement.

On the other hand, the Yankees are unsure of their strategy for the shortstop position because there are four excellent candidates available. They have two options, signing one of Trea Turner, Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts, or Dansby Swanson.
