Yankees Player Targets

Yankees absolute dream trade target: Shohei Ohtani

The Yankees made an offer on Ohtani at this trade deadline; even with the Angels turning it down, he should remain a future target.

Yankees potential trade target: Pablo López

Could the Marlins’ Pablo López potentially be available?

Yankees potential trade target: Tyler Mahle

The righty starter may be the more gettable arm from the Reds at the trade deadline.

Yankees absolute dream trade target: Juan Soto

Juan Soto could be available. What would that mean for the AL?

Yankees potential trade target: Luis Castillo

The best player available at the deadline is sure to attract a healthy list of suitors.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Kyle Farmer

The Bombers could fix their shortage at backup shortstop and catcher with one player.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Jesse Winker

Winker is not an ideal fit defensively, but he is the perfect hitter for the Yankees’ lineup.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Adrian Houser

Though not a true number two, Houser’s high groundball rates would play well in Yankee Stadium

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Daniel Vogelbach

The former second-round pick hits righties well, but is probably not a fit for the Yankees.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Tanner Scott

The Baltimore southpaw is the exact type of reliever who the Yankees usually target.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Zac Gallen

The young righty is coming off his worst season as a big leaguer, but his profile fits exactly what the Yankees have been looking for in recent years.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: John Means

It’s unclear if the O’s southpaw is available, but if he is, then the Yankees should inquire.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: J.D. Davis

Could the Mets send their once-promising third baseman to their crosstown rivals?4

Yankees Potential Trade Target: J.P. Crawford

Could Brian Cashman capitalize on Jerry Dipoto’s fondness for the big trade?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brock Holt

The former Red Sox utility infielder is no longer the supersub he was with Boston, but might be a worthwhile gamble on a minor league deal.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Adam Ottavino

Some broken relationships are better left unfixed.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Ramón Laureano

The talented outfielder could be a buy-low depth piece from a selling team.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Chris Paddack

The young righty has seen his stock fall in recent year, but maybe Matt Blake can help unlock the potential he flashed as a rookie.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Archie Bradley

His days as a dominant reliever may be coming to an end.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Danny Duffy

The left-hander may not be the most enticing name out there, but he could be a good addition to the pitching staff.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Ian Kennedy

At this point, the only thing driving a reunion with the 37 year old would be sentimentality.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Luis Castillo

The Reds’ ace would command a large return.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Tyler Mahle

The right-hander is young, good, controllable, and has a high-efficiency fastball, making him perfect for New York.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Joey Votto

In what world could the Yankees acquire the slugger from Cincinnati?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Michael Pineda

Would the Yankees consider a reunion with Big Mike five years after last donned pinstripes?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrew McCutchen

As enjoyable as his first stint in the Bronx may have been, the Yankees do not need another corner outfielder.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Carlos Martínez

Carlos Martínez works only as a minor league free agent with an invite to spring training, and nothing more.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrew Chafin

Big Country set career marks in 2021, but were the gains he made sustainable?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Jeff McNeil

He has the potential to be one of the best hitters in the league, but caused some strife for the Mets

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Johnny Cueto

Would the one-time ace be worth it at this stage of his career? Probably not.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Yusei Kikuchi

The 30-year-old lefty is one of the few remaining impact starting pitchers on the free agent market.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Dominic Smith

His track record is mixed, but he could potentially serve as a first base option
