Yankees Player Targets

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Clayton Kershaw

New York might as well do their due diligence, despite the likelihood the veteran lefty winds up back with the Dodgers or with his hometown Rangers.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Collin McHugh

Collin McHugh was elite for Tampa Bay in 2021.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kyle Seager

Kyle Seager is a plus defender who is coming off a career year in terms of home runs. Could he be a fit for the Yankees in 2022?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Michael Conforto

Michael Conforto may be that lefty bat the Yankees need.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Matt Chapman

The third baseman wouldn’t come cheap, but would change the tenor of the infield.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Sean Murphy

There are precious few potential upgrades for the catcher position available to the Yankees, but Oakland backstop Sean Murphy is one of them.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brett Anderson

His performance is fine for a back-end starter, but he can’t stay healthy

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Joc Pederson

After winning two consecutive World Series titles with two different teams, could Pederson be an option for the Yankees?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Eddie Rosario

Despite his playoff heroics, Eddie Rosario just doesn’t seem like a fit for the Yankees.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Andrew Miller

The former Yankee Game Ender is looking to give his career second life.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brad Boxberger

If the Yankees are looking to add depth to their bullpen, they can do a lot worse than Brad Boxberger.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Matthew Boyd

Brian Cashman finally has a chance to acquire his long-time target for nothing but money, but should he?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Thyago Vieira

After a couple successful years in Japan, could the flamethrower be a bullpen option for the Yankees?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kenley Jansen

Kenley Jansen remains an elite reliever, and could leave LA.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kyle Schwarber

He would be limited to first base, where the infield defense is bad enough already

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Elvis Andrus

Would the A’s package the veteran shortstop in a trade for one of their arbitration-eligible stars?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Ketel Marte

The talented, versatile Arizona Diamondbacks star offers a good, high-upside bat, but some defensive questions in the positions the Yankees need to cover the most.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Kris Bryant

The Yankees have several holes to fill; fortunately, Kris Bryant can fill several of them.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Chris Bassitt

The veteran righty could be one of the steals of the offseason

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Sean Manaea

If Oakland pushes forward with a teardown this offseason, Manaea may be the first man to go.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Nelson Cruz

Cruz has been an excellent hitter for a long time now, but would he be a fit for the 2022 Yankees?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Josh Harrison

If the Yankees are looking for some depth and positional versatility, Josh Harrison might be someone to consider.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Tommy Pham

Tommy Pham is a bounce-back candidate at a reasonable price for the Yankees.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Dellin Betances

Could an old friend provide some veteran depth on a minor league deal?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Ryan Tepera

The veteran right-hander emphasized throwing his excellent slider more and turned into quite a weapon from the bullpen. He would make sense for the Yankees

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Freddie Freeman

Though it may be difficult to get him to leave Atlanta, the Yankees need to at least do their due diligence with Freddie Freeman.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Zack Greinke

Does the likely future Hall of Famer have anything left in the tank?

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Seiya Suzuki

Should the Yankees be interested in one of the best hitters in NPB?

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Paul DeJong

Although the bat has declined in recent years, DeJong’s stellar defense and team-friendly contract may catch the Yankees’ eye.

Yankees Potential Trade Target: Frankie Montas

The Yankees would be smart to inquire about the availability and acquisition cost of the talented 28-year-old Oakland pitcher.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Brett Gardner

As unexciting as it would be, there’s certainly a chance that the Yankees bring back their longest-tenured member once again.

Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Nick Castellanos

Could the Yankees have interest in one of the better bats on the free agent market?
