The New York Yankees were very active this last season, dealing some great players to build a fantastic farm system. Now, which players are likely going to be dealt according to these Yankees rumors?
The New York Yankees are undergoing a youth movement, in case you were unaware. Despite stating that the organization was not going to enter rebuild mode, the franchise pulled the trigger on dealing some valuable assets. Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, and Brian McCann, in particular, were dealt to bring great prospects into the New York organization.
Although the Yankees got Chapman back during free agency, the team showed that they perform better under their youth movement. Gary Sanchez stepped up big and is the face of the future for the Yankees. The great part is that most of their youth talent hasn’t even surfaced yet.
The Yankees have a staggering seven players that made the MLB Pipeline Top 100 Prospects list. That is more than the White Sox (6), Brewers (5), and the same as the Braves (7) – all teams regarded as having the best farms in baseball. Of the Yankees seven only one player, Aaron Judge, has actually seen time at the MLB level. The rest of these are lurking in the shadows, and I am ready.
Despite the youth movement being the proper direction the Yankees still made head-scratching signings in the likes of Matt Holliday and Chris Carter. These guys just don’t seem to fit the mold that the Yankees are currently making.
All of this newfound talent has caused Yankees rumors to circulate regarding talents that might get dealt. That is why we are here, as we are going to take a look at three potential players that may get dealt according to the Yankees Rumors.
