Breaking News: New York Yankees Unleash Secret Weapon! Shocking Trade Moves in the Works for a Star Pitcher



At present, the New York Yankees’ starting rotation consists of Gerrit Cole, Carlos Rodón, Nestor Cortes, Clarke Schmidt, and an uncertain fifth spot. As spring training approaches in just over a month, the team is expected to bolster its rotation by acquiring at least one established starter through trade, free agency, or a combination of both.

Various trade targets have been linked to the Yankees, including Shane Bieber from the Cleveland Guardians, Jesus Luzardo from the Miami Marlins, and Dylan Cease from the Chicago White Sox. However, these potential acquisitions come with a price, as the Yankees will need to trade away valuable players to secure a deal. Here are some likely candidates within the organization who may be included in a trade:

Major Leaguers:
1. Oswald Peraza, a 23-year-old shortstop, is a former top-100 prospect known for his defensive prowess. Despite a stellar .836 OPS in Triple-A, he struggled with a .191/.267/.272 slash line in limited MLB appearances.
2. Everson Pereira, a promising outfielder, hit .151/.233/.194 in his 27-game trial in the big leagues. He excelled in Double-A and Triple-A but faces competition from established major leaguers after recent outfield acquisitions.
3. Jasson Domínguez, a highly regarded center field prospect, showcased his potential in a small MLB sample but is currently recovering from an elbow injury.
4. Ben Rortvedt, a catcher, might not be a significant trade piece for a frontline starter, but with a crowded catching situation, the Yankees may explore options to avoid exposing him to waivers.

1. Spencer Jones, an imposing outfielder often compared to Aaron Judge, is the Yankees’ top prospect with massive power potential. Although he reached Double-A last season, the team may be hesitant to part with him due to his considerable upside.
2. Chase Hampton and Will Warren, pitching prospects, are on track to become mid-rotation starters. Both have reached the high minors and could make MLB debuts in 2024, providing enticing options for potential trade suitors.

While these players are potential trade assets, the Yankees may be cautious in parting with certain prospects with high ceilings, like Spencer Jones. The team’s need for additional starting pitchers may lead to changes in the roster as spring training unfolds.
