Yankees News: 3 lefty outfielders Cashman could sign in coming days

New York Yankees, Brett Gardner

3.) Eddie Rosario

If the Yankees are looking to add power, Eddie Rosario could fit the bill. Over 57 games, he had 13 homers and 14 RBIs with the Minnesota Twins this past season. He has been a double-digit HR hitter his entire career, logging 32 in 2019 and 24 in 2018. He’s never gone below a .257 average, which he recorded in 2020. Defensively, he has played in almost every outfield spot, giving him the versatility the Yankees need as they consistently deal with injuries.

This past year, he allowed two errors and logged 84 put-outs over 51 games, earning a .978 fielding percentage. He’s a consistent option that Cashman might consider as an alternative. Some might even say Rosario is an underrated defender, with +9 Defensive Runs Saved, +2.9 UZR/150) over 4848 career innings as a left fielder.
