Yankees: Three players who may not return for the 2022 MLB season

The New York Yankees continue to tally the damage from their chaotic season of MLB 2022 and its disastrous end, where they were never certain of practically anything throughout the year and had to improvise, for the endHe barely made it to the American League Wild Card game and was eliminated by rivals Boston’s Red Sox. Now there are many doubts in the future of the team and surely there will be several players who will not continue.

The future looks uncertain for some players and it is likely that there are several of those who end their contracts that will not continue on the team and Brian Cashman will have to make the decision to let them go.

  • Brett Gardner: The veteran outfielder is the last vestige that remains of that World Series championship that the Yankees won in 2009, being a great leader in the clubhouse although age is already beginning to be a factor in Gardy, who is soon to turn 39 years old. . He signed for a year with a team option for a second for the 2022 season, but looking at the Yankees’ situation, Cashman is likely saying goodbye to his veteran and not exercising that clause.
  • Andrew Heaney: Heaney came to the Bronx Bombers midseason via trade from the Los Angeles Angels, a patch for the rotation at a critical time for the Yankees. He was designated for assignment before the Wild Card game, sent to Triple A, and subsequently released. With an ERA of 7.32 in 35.2 innings worked in the Bronx, we probably won’t see him again in New York.
  • Corey Kluber: Kluber came to the Yankees in 2021 hoping to revitalize his career after two really disastrous years in 2019 and 2020. While Kluber looked good at first and even threw a no-hitter, injuries kept him apart for much of the year, and Although he finished with a respectable 3.82 ERA in the end, he barely worked 80 innings for $ 11 million. Unless he lowers his salary claims, he could see the end of his career in the Bronx.
