The New York Yankees might have won the sprint for the most desired MLB free agent. However, the marathon for building a strong roaster is still going on. Recently, the reports of the Bombers trying to get San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis is getting a lot of prominence. And the Yankees fans are hyped about it. Will Tatis finally land with the Bombers? Keep reading to find out.
New York Yankees Looking To Acquire Fernando Tatis!
The Yankees may have re-signed Aaron Judge after they decided to bring him back to Yankee Stadium. Judge is perhaps the most wanted player in MLB. They are eager to let their nearest competitors know that they are not the only team that can afford to make big deals. So they are not finished there. New York Yankees and San Diego Padres\’ admirers got the week off to an exciting start. There is news that the \”Bronx Bombers\” are interested in a trade for slugger Fernando Tatis Jr.
\”Brian Cashman, the general manager of the Yankees, is under pressure,\” according to Rick DiPietro, presenter of the morning program on ESPN Radio. This is a result of the nearby New York Mets\’ negotiations this offseason. DiPietro stated that dealing with Fernando Tatis Jr. would be that \”major move.\” Since he used performance-enhancing drugs, the 23-year-old shortstop has been suspended for 80 games. And apparently, Xander Bogaerts\’ last week\’s signing by the Padres may have left him without a position.
When Tatis Jr. is eligible to play again after his suspension the following season, he likely will be shifted to the outfield. However, DiPietro claimed that over the weekend. He learned that the New York Yankees are considering the possibility of sending the tarnished star to the Bronx. However, the Mets, who boast MLB\’s richest owner, have wasted no time in making deals in advance of the upcoming season. On the other hand, the Yankees are making sure they are well prepared.
Although signing Tatis Jr. would make a major statement, it\’s not totally impossible. The Padres recently opted to acquire Xander Bogaerts from the Boston Red Sox. And instead of shifting him to another area of the field, they might trade him. Tatis Jr. won\’t be able to play when the 2023 season begins because of his ongoing suspension for using performance-enhancing substances. Despite recovering from surgery on his wrist and shoulder, he won\’t be able to play until the middle of April.
The 23-year-old is under a long-term deal with the Padres. The Yankees may find it to be a wise investment because his current yearly wage is not excessive. Even though his projected salary for 2023 is only $7 million, it\’s possible that he will have increased in value by then. Meanwhile, the netizens have been quite skeptical as a result of this story\’s failure to provide a reliable source. The assertion was ridiculed by a large portion of fans, including those of the San Diego Padres and the New York Yankees.
