Yankees have moved aggressively to fix its problems.
For a good chunk of the first half of the season, the Yankees were performing well better than most expected. Buoyed by phenom Aaron Judge, who has performed at an MVP caliber level, they reached a peak record of 38 23 on June 12. Then, they were hit by a combination of injuries and ineffectiveness. Starlin Castro http://www.yankeesfanaticsjersey.com/austin-romine-jersey-c-14.html, Didi Gregorius, Matt Holliday, Aaron Hicks, CC Sabathia and Aroldis Chapman each spent time on the shelf, and even some of their replacements—Tyler Austin and Dustin Fowler—quickly succumbed to injuries.
In the middle of all that, the bullpen lost its way. Dellin Betances and Tyler Clippard went from lockdown relievers to liabilities, and the last few innings of games became increasingly stressful.
With a team based Masahiro Tanaka Jersey around a young core of talent for the first time in years, the Yankees have moved aggressively to fix its problems. They traded away 2016 first round pick Blake Rutherford in a deal that brought back Tommy Kahnle and David Robertson and sent Clippard away to bolster the bullpen.
With Kahnle, Robertson, Betances, Chad Green, Adam Warren and Chapman, the Yankees now have an extremely deep bullpen. The lineup should be fine as well, but the Yankees could use additional help for the starting rotation http://www.yankeesfanaticsjersey.com/brian-mccann-jersey-c-13.html, especially with Michael Pineda sidelined.
With a farm system in its best shape since the early 1990s http://www.yankeesfanaticsjersey.com/kirby-yates-jersey-c-12.html, the Yankees have the pieces to make further significant moves. Now it’s just a matter of deciding how aggressive they want to be.
