The New York Yankees had a very productive winter: They kept first baseman Anthony Rizzo and especially right fielder Aaron Judge, and added left-handed starter Carlos Rodon. But they can pass up the remaining left-field free agents like Jurickson Profar, David Peralta and Corey Dickerson.
They want to stay below the $293 million dollar luxury threshold of the “Steve Cohen tax” (they’re at $290 million), and they’re not averse to giving Venezuelan Oswaldo Cabrera and Dominican Estevan Florial a chance:
The Yankees were interested in Andrew Benintendi but only for four years. They liked Michael Conforto, too, but not because of the $36 million, two-year deal with a player option he got with the San Francisco Giants.
Interesting that the Giants turned to a player who was lost last year and underwent shoulder surgery after questioning the MRI exam of Puerto Rican shortstop Carlos Correa.
