MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

New York Post | Dan Martin: While the DJ LeMahieu situation remains the Yankees’ number one priority, it seems as if they might have an eye on their next target when that’s settled. Some think that once LeMahieu signs in New York or otherwise, the Yankees will address their bullpen with Archie Bradley and Brad Hand as possibilities. | Randy Miller: Hall of Fame ballots continue to trickle in as we near next month’s 2021 class announcement. Several former Yankees are on the ballot this year, and some have made some gains based on the 49 voters who have released their choices. Roger Clemens, Andy Pettitte, Bobby Abreu and Andruw Jones have all been named on a higher percentage this year than in past years. However, only Clemens is remotely close to the 75% needed for induction, and even he’s at 63.4%. As mentioned, only 49 ballots have been revealed, so there’s still a long way to go. | Jonathan Mayo and Mike Rosenbaum: We’re nearing the time of year when prospect lists become one of the main topics of conversation in baseball fandom. Related to that, here is a list of some prospects come good: the best draft pick by each MLB team. You may be familiar with the Yankees’ choice: some guy named Derek Jeter.
