RUMORS: New York Yankees Already Pursuing This Cardinals Outfielder As Focus Shifts To 2024!

The New York Yankees want to get done with the 2023 MLB season as soon as possible. The plight has become unbearable for the fans and owners alike as they contemplate the future. The promotion of promising prospects indicated the club’s sudden shift to 2024. Apparently, the front office is looking to discover who is fit enough to make it to the roster next year.

Having said that, while the in-house prospects continue to fight their way, the New York Yankees are also scouting to seek outside help. A lot of high-end players will be hitting the free agency next season, including Shohei Ohtani and Cody Bellinger. Meanwhile, Brendan Kuty of Athletic has recently linked the Bombers to a young outfielder who, in fact, they missed out on during the trade deadline this year.

The New York Yankees passed on multiple high-end outfielders during the August 1 trade deadline. Apparently, the front office’s unwillingness to sacrifice the prospects led to a fallout. At the end of the deadline, the Yanks ended up securing only two bullpen pieces who no longer remain on active rosters. Having said that, the Bombers will look to learn from their mistakes during the upcoming off-season. As the team turned the page in 2023, preparations for the 2024 season have already begun in full swing. Moreover, if Brendan Kuty of the Athletic is to be believed, the Bombers already have a set target.

As per Kuty, 24-year-old outfielder of the St.Louis Cardinals, Dylan Carlson, is a potential trade target of the New York Yankees. They passed him on during the August 1 deadline due to undisclosed reasons. Regardless, Dylan just had his worst baseball year in 2023. He is hitting .219 with five homers, 27 RBIs and .651 OPS this season. He last hit prime in 2021, wherein he hit 18 home runs with a .780 OPS. Nonetheless, Carlson is just 24 with loads of promising potential stored in him. If groomed well, he possesses the capabilities of ending the Yanks withstanding left-field woes. Besides, Dylan is the best possible option for the Bombers, as Cody Bellinger’s stakes are going to shoot up after the kind of season he has had with the Cubs this year.

A 20-year-old kid from the Dominican Republic has swept the MLB world off their feat. Jasson Dominguez’s arrival led to the ouster of Harrison Bader, and he shut down Isiah Kiner-Falefa‘s chances for the rest of the year by taking up center-field duties. He is hot and looks highly promising. So, will the Yankees play him regularly in 2024, considering his lack of experience? Well, the skipper, Aaron Boone, is ready to shoot his shot.

He said that rivals will now prepare for him and undergo a lot of adjustments. They know the kid’s potential and will come up with a plan. Hence, if Jasson Dominguez wants to succeed, he will also have to evolve side by side. He should be able to adapt to different situations and fight when things do not go his way. Because that is something that will happen a lot in his budding Major League career. Regardless, the chance of Dominguez’s regular presence in 2024 is extremely high at the moment, barring any setbacks.
