Unbelievable Rumor: Yankees Eyeing Rising Star Pitcher for Mega Trade!



The New York Yankees have been associated with numerous pitchers potentially available this offseason, demonstrating their willingness to make significant moves. Following the acquisition of standout hitter Juan Soto in a high-profile trade with the San Diego Padres, there are indications that the Yankees might engage in another substantial trade this offseason. The team is actively seeking to enhance its starting rotation, with reported interest in prominent free agents like Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery, as well as potential trade candidates.

One player who could be on the trade radar is Jesús Luzardo, the budding ace of the Miami Marlins, as suggested by ESPN’s Jeff Passan. Passan noted, “That’s why Jesús Luzardo’s name continues to circulate among teams interested in a starter.” The 26-year-old left-hander delivered a solid performance with a 3.58 ERA in 178 2/3 innings, striking out 208 batters while maintaining an impressive ratio of strikeouts to walks. The Marlins, led by new general manager Peter Bendix, are reportedly open to discussions about all their players except for Eury Pérez.

According to Passan, Luzardo is considered one of the most valuable trade assets for the Marlins, surpassing even NL batting champion Luis Arráez. Whether it’s the Boston Red Sox, Baltimore Orioles, or either of the New York teams, Luzardo is viewed as a desirable addition to their rotation for the next three seasons. Despite Luzardo’s frequent appearances in trade rumors, the Yankees could be a viable option for the 26-year-old left-hander. With Luzardo showing potential as a top-tier starter, a trade would undoubtedly come at a significant cost, but the Yankees possess the farm system to facilitate such a deal. Another substantial trade involving the Yankees could be on the horizon.
