The New York Yankees have been running confidently in the race to acquire Aaron Judge. The 2022 MVP has been at the center of the team\’s plan for the next season. Luckily, the Yankees have accomplished their mission of re-signing Judge. However, the team does not seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Even after signing Judge, the team is on a roll trying to hire more new players for their roaster.
The Yankees Trifle More Moves!
The majority of New York Yankees supporters were ecstatic to learn that star outfielder Aaron Judge will be signed long-term by the team. The San Francisco Giants and the San Diego Padres made significant efforts to prevent the New York Yankees from signing Judge. But in the end, the Bombers were successful in signing Judge for a nine-year worth $360 million contract.
Recently the team\’s general manager Brian Cashman has revealed that the team has a lot of aspects to cover about their roaster for the future. As per Cashman, the team will continue to keep doing so. The Yankees GM wants to give the manager Boone the best possible team. So that the Yankees have a strong chance of winning the championship next year.
Boone also stated that Judge\’s deal is a huge plus and may be the catalyst for New York\’s success. When it came to New York\’s offseason goals, keeping No. 99 was without a doubt the top priority. This situation won\’t present itself to the Yankees anymore. To attempt to fill the shoes of a star player who had just secured the most-desired free agent in Aaron Judge, though, would have required a flurry of acquisitions and a lot of expenditure.
There are still other gaps to be filled, but you can never have enough pitchers, and New York has to get a left fielder unless they feel happy with a combination of Aaron Hicks and rookie Oswaldo Cabrera. Particularly now that starter Jameson Taillon has left following Tuesday\’s signing with the Cubs. Cashman also mentioned that he would want to see Andrew Benintendi return. The left-handed outfielder, though, has been connected to a number of teams, including the Astros, the current world champions.
Steinbrenner stated last month that he wanted to field a balanced lineup after the Yanks\’ subpar offensive effort in their ALCS defeat to Houston. Right-handed pitcher Tommy Kahnle was re-signed by the Yankees on a two-year deal this week, and left-handed first baseman Anthony Rizzo was promptly given a new two-year, $40 million contract. The Yankees still have a left-field opening that has to be filled. They will take on both expensive and mid-tier starters as well as left-handed relievers.
