Here are the five moves that will make the Yankees a better team in the 2022 Major League Baseball season.
Luis Severino was one of the big news this year for the Yankees. Now he is expected to rest and strengthen his arm in the winter so that he will rank second in the rotation in the coming season and show he can win at least 15 games.
In 2021, Luke Voit could not be the productive first baseman of other years for the Yankees, due to injuries. He even closed the season on the 60-day disabled list and is expected to return to 100% to remain part of the lineup next year.
Trevor Story will be the Yankees’ primary target. They looked for it during the last trade deadline and will now be more aggressive in the winter. The shortstop demands $ 30 million a year on his contract, which they are willing to pay in New York, to add him to Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge.
Willson Contreras is one of the Yankees’ targets during free agency. He has been recognized for his good offensive production, which this year averaged .237 with 23 homers and 57 RBIs, numbers that could well serve at the start of the bottom of the Yankees lineup.
Although Zack Greinke had a good year with the Astros At 11-6, the right-hander is unlikely to return to the team next year due to their budget. For their part, the Yankees could give him an amount close to what the right-hander asks for, which could be around $ 15 million a year, according to Spotrac.
