Fans want Voit as 1B starter and not Freeman or Rizzo
Although it is not a priority for the Yankees to strengthen the first base position, rumors have been heard during the offseason that the front office has been exploring options to see who could be the starting first baseman in the 2022 campaign.
Even with Luke Voit on the roster, the Bombers don’t look too bad about acquiring veteran free agents: Anthony Rizzo or Freddie Freeman. It is also said that there would be some interest in executing a change with the Athletics for Matt Olson. The hypothetical incorporation of any of the three mentioned could mean the departure of Voit from the club.
However, the fans of the Mulos have another vision regarding who is their favorite to be the starting first baseman in the next season. The MLB Trade Rumors website launched a poll for fans to vote, and so far Voit is in the lead with a solid 27 percent. He is closely followed by Anthony Rizzo (23%) and Matt Olson (21%). Slightly further behind are Freddie Freeman (15%) and DJ LeMahieu (11%).
Yankees: Luis Severino hopes to be ready to pitch once Spring Training begins
The New York Yankees’ starting rotation should get a tremendous boost this season with the return of right-hander Luis Severino. The right-hander said he hopes to be ready to go when spring training begins. Severino has only pitched 18 innings in the majors since 2019 after undergoing Tommy John surgery and facing several setbacks during his recovery.
As it is, Severino is expected to slot into a Yankees rotation that also includes ace Gerrit Cole, right-hander Domingo Germán and left-handers Jordan Montgomery and Nestor Cortes.
Chapman or Bryant candidates for Yankees 3B? It would be possible if Boone moves Urshela to the SS
After a recent video in which Colombian Gio Urshela and Venezuelan Gleyber Torres are seen practicing defense as a shortstop and second baseman, respectively, the rumors about the possible adjustment that the Yankees would make in 2022 with both players changing of position, they did not wait in the social networks.
In the case of Torres, it was already known that Aaron Boone, boss of the Mulos, would move him to second base, however, seeing Gio playing shortstop nobody expected it. Therefore, in the event that the “coffee grower” is moved to shortstop as a starter starting next season, the Bombers could focus on reinforcing their squad with a new third baseman and not a shortstop.
The options the Yankees could consider if a hot corner opening is created are primarily two big-name players: free agent Kris Bryant and current Oakland Athletics third baseman Matt Chapman.
In fact, recent rumors pointed to Chapman as a possible candidate to land in New York via exchange, so the move is not so far-fetched. Regarding Bryant, formerly of the Cubs and Giants, he has the advantage of being a multifunctional defender, since in addition to playing the corners of the infield, he can also serve in all three outfield.
