Should Yankees sign Kyle Schwarber?; Six replacements if DJ LeMahieu leaves New York; Will Brian Cashman be aggressive in free agency?

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Pittsburgh Pirates Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

SNY | Scott Thompson: The Cubs cut ties with Kyle Schwarber last week, a player Brian Cashman has sought after in recent years. Now a free agent, the Yankees could again have some interest in the lefty slugger. Here are the pros and cons for bringing Schwarber to the Bronx.

NJ.com | Joe Giglio: DJ LeMahieu is a free agent, and there is a chance the Yankees don’t bring him back to the Bronx. If that’s the case, New York will need to find his replacement. Here are six options that could take LeMahieu’s spot, including the thought of trading for a superstar.

NY Post | Dan Martin: The Yankees, as well as the rest of baseball, have taken things slowly this offseason. Even last year, the Bombers took their time before signing Gerrit Cole. But after a shortened regular season that led to huge economic losses in the Bronx, it remains to be seen just how aggressive the Yankees end up being this time around.
