It is well known that the priority of the Bronx team for the next season of Big leagues it’s pitching, but there are other departments that need to be strengthened.
One of his goals remains to get a hitter to add depth to the lineup, and in this winter’s free agent market he will have a number of options.
One of the players who will be available to trade is Kris Bryant, who has just seen his season ended with the elimination of the San Francisco Giants.
Bryant’s numbers this year (.265 / .353 / .481 line, 32 doubles, 25 homers, 73 RBIs) were far from the performances that led him to being the 2016 NL MVP and Rookie of the Year. in 2015.
But in the postseason he was on fire with a .471 average and showed he still has quality to help a team like the Yankees.
And his contribution would not only be offensive, he can also play third base and the outfield.
The Spotrac portal estimates that Bryant’s market value will be in the order of $ 23 million annually. With Scott Boras as an agent, it is believed that he can aspire to a long contract, of about 7 years and 250 million.
However, the Yankees may not be as inclined to a long commitment to Bryant, due to the salaries of Gerrit Cole and Giancarlo Stanton and the fact that they will surely offer a multi-year to Aaron Judge.
The proposal that Brian Cashman puts on the table can be for a pact between 3 and 4 seasons for an amount of between 75 and 100 million dollars.
