New York Yankees news roundup

Happy Birthday this week to Yankee reliever Joely Rodriguez, and starting pitcher Jameson Taillon. Congratulations to Aaron Judge being named to his second Silver Slugger award. Congratulations to Yankee ace Gerrit Cole for coming in second in the Cy Young voting. Joey Gallo has another Gold Glove award for his mantle, it’s his second in his career. Ex New York Mets manager Luis Rojas’ option was not taken up by the Mets, but in a surprise move the Yankees have hired him to be the new third base coach, replacing Phil Nevin. The Yankees have learned that Justin Verlander will resign with the Houston Astros for one year at $26 million.

Hal and Cashman indicate all is in flex

Just days ago it looked as if Brian Cashman and the Yankees would be opening up the purse and spending some big money on a long term contract for a starting shortstop. But now it appears that has changed in favor of a short gap measure, while the Yankees wait for prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza to become major league ready later this season or in 2023. So, it likely will not be costly Correa, the less expensive Marcus Semien now seems like the better option.

This does not mean the Yankees won’t be spending money, they will be, just not as much on shortstop. The Yankees still need back up at center and at least one new starting pitcher. Everything is in flex right now, but many moves, purchases and trades will be upcoming in an offseason that will see many changes for the New York Yankees.
