New York Yankees Like San Francisco Giants SP Carlos Rodón in Free Agency


While the Yankees continue to focus on retaining Aaron Judge in free agency this offseason, an initiative that will require a deep dive into owner Hal Steinbrenner’s pockets, New York is hoping to bolster their starting rotation on the open market. 

Several top-tier starters are available this winter and while some are more attainable than others, it seems like the Yankees are casting a wide net at this point in the offseason.

Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports that New York has “been in contact” with this year’s AL Cy Young Award winner Justin Verlander, Japanese star Kodai Senga, Giants lefty Carlos Rodón and more. He also singled out ex-Yankees starter Jameson Tailllon—who could return after two years in pinstripes—as well as Pablo López of the Marlins, a pitcher that the Yankees tried to acquire at this summer’s trade deadline.
