The Yankees are emerging thanks to freelance agents, so why not head to the commercial market and rival a division for help?
The Yankees have a clear need to tackle in the shortcut position.
Before the lockdown, New York was associated with big names like Corey Seager (now with the Texas Rangers), Trevor Story and Carlos Correa. And it’s still possible that the Yankees managed to write the Story or Correa after the door lock ends.
But now, let’s go crazy, shall we?
Former MLB player and current analyst Xavier Scruggs has suggested a wild sale between the Yankees and rival Toronto Blue Jays involving missing star… Bo Bichette?
MLB analyst recommends Yankees-Blue Jays trade involving Bo Bichette
It would be a complete loss of composure for the Blue Jays at the expense of one of their brightest young players in Bichette, who is part of the team’s young core, which includes Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Teoscar Hernandez. But with the Yankees, of all the teams? Forget it.
Bichette has had an stellar career to date, with a occupation .828 OPS and 123 OPS + at the age of 23 years old. That type of player only gets paid the ransom. Any transaction for Bichette would have to start with a top prospect like Anthony Volpe of the Yankees, Oswald Peraza and/or Jason Dominguez.
Speaking of Volpe and Peraza, the Yankees already have two top short laning prospects in the house. And while the two may have to be apart for at least a year, the rewards by not blocking them at the major league level could be huge for New York.
For what it’s worth, Scruggs also mentions Bobby Witt Jr as a potential solution to the Yankees’ shortcut problem. Which is also ridiculous, since he is the number 1 potential customer of the Kansas City Royals at the moment.
Witt Jr has yet to see major league action, and while he may be closer than Volpe and Peraza at this point, the idea is that the Royals will trade off one of the top young players of the tournament. nothing seemed to them to be ridiculous.
