Apart from the obvious case of Aaron Judgewho is he free agent with higher priority to sign for the Bronx Bombers, other “big shots” like first baseman Anthony Rizzo and experienced starting pitcher Justin Verlanderthey must be clear objectives to acquire in the current offseason, if they want to be protagonists in the next campaign.
Another player who is rumored to be seriously interested in adding to the roster for the 2023 season is the Japanese outfielder, Masataka Yoshidasuperstar slugger in Japan who has aroused the interest of several teams in the majors after declaring himself an international free agent.

It should be remembered that in the case of Verlander, a right-handed veteran who is likely to be the winner of the American League Cy Young Award this year, last year he was on the Mules’ radar as a reinforcement for the rotation, however, he decided to remain in the Astros, current MLB champion.
