Yankees Player Targets

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Matt Carpenter

A reunion between Matt Carpenter and the Yankees could make a lot of sense.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kenley Jansen

Do the Yankees need a new closer?

Why not a cheap outfield fallback option in case everything else goes wrong?

Is there a world where the former division rival makes sense in the Bronx?

David Bednar would be a game-changer for the Yankees bullpen.

Should the Yankees pursue a reunion with Taillon for 2023 and beyond?

Tommy Kahnle was fun to have in pinstripes the first time around.

Stripling was one of the AL’s best starting pitchers in the final four months of the season.

The veteran outfielder would bring excellent contact skills and modest power to the Yankees’ lineup.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Chris Bassitt

The Yankees can balance depth with upside in going after the ex-Met.

The Miami starter was the subject of trade rumors at the deadline. Could New York revisit him?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Willson Contreras

The All-Star catcher is coming off the best season of his career.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Ian Happ

Could the current Cubbie lock down left field?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Alex Lange

The righty reliever is the most desirable arm out of Detroit’s bullpen, and likely the most expensive to acquire.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brandon Nimmo

The OBP machine would look amazing at the top of the Yankees lineup.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Mitch Haniger

Should the Yankees sign the oft-injured but solid vet outfielder?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Gregory Soto

Could the fireballing lefty be a replacement for the departed Aroldis Chapman?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brandon Drury

Who wouldn’t love a reunion with a former Yankee great?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrew Chafin

The former Tigers left-hander is as reliable as they come and can really help the Yankees’ bullpen.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Dansby Swanson

Swanson is hitting the free agent market after a breakout year, so should the Yankees consider him?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Matt Strahm

Looking at one of the more interesting possible bargains in free agency.

One of NPB’s best arms is headed to MLB.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Justin Verlander

Will the third time be the charm for New York and the reigning AL Cy Young winner?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Jesse Winker

The Mariners have already begun making deals. Could one with the Yankees be in their future?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Xander Bogaerts

The Yankees have a current need at shortstop and the ability to shift him to third when he’s older.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Cody Bellinger

Once one of the league’s shining stars, Cody Bellinger was non-tendered by the Dodgers on Friday.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Carlos Correa

Will the Yankees pass up on the star shortstop for the second year in a row?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Bryan Reynolds

The Yankees are connected to the Pirates outfielder every year. What are the odds of a deal in the 2022-23 offseason?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Carlos Rodón

The left-hander can take the Yankees’ rotation to the next level but probably won’t be a priority signing

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: David Robertson

A successful 2022 campaign and a deep postseason run showed D-Rob is back to form, and a potential return home should be on the table.
