Who arrives? Corey Seager is the favorite to be the Yankees shortstop in 2022

The New York Yankees continue to sail in a sea of ​​mediocrity and they put the possibility of reaching the playoffs at risk every day of MLB this same year, being in a triple tie in the wild card of the American League with the Red Sox of Boston and the amazing Toronto Blue Jays. One of his great weaknesses has undoubtedly been the Venezuelan Gleyber Torres, who has disappointed both on offense and defense this year.

One of the big Yankees themes heading into the offseason and next MLB season is clearly whether to trust Torres to continue at short stops or sign one of the many shortstops available in the upcoming winter free-agent market; But if the Yankees go shopping, there seems to be a favorite already.

According to the bookmakers, the favorite to reach the Bronx is still Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, with +350 odds, followed by Trevor Story of the Colorado Rockies, who has +500 odds. to be signed by the Yankees next winter.

Those who still have possibilities but not as many as the first two are Carlos Correa of ​​the Astros (+750), Marcus Semien of the Blue Jays (+1150), and newcomer to the New York Mets, Javier Báez, (+1400)

I started as a rookie on Al Bat in early 2018 and I am going into my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa.
