Last week, the Yankees announced that James Paxton would undergo back surgery and be sidelined for roughly 3-4 months. That is quite the blow to the rotation, but does help explain why rumors that the Bombers wanted to trade J.A. Happ dried up. Now the team will have to replace Paxton in the rotation. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Who should take the fifth spot in the Yankees’ rotation?
According to Brian Cashman, there will be a spring training competition between Mike King, Jonathan Loaisiga, Luis Cessa, Jordan Montgomery, and Deivi Garcia. Before, we expected these guys to compete with Happ for the fifth spot. Now that the veteran southpaw has been penciled into the number four slot, who do you think is the best choice for the final spot? Head over to the FanPost section and share your answer. We’ll feature one of the submissions on the front page on Friday.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (February 14) for your post to be considered.
