New York Yankees minor league shortstop Anthony Volpe would be one of the candidates to be the best major league prospect of the 2022 season, according to an analysis by MLB Pipeline.
However, the report highlights that Volpe would have tough competition with San Diego Padres farms shortstop CJ Abraham, who is also shaping up to be a notable development advance. In addition, the specialized website ensures that neither of the two players would experience a promotion to their respective big teams this year.
Former Yankees pitcher and MLB commentator David Cone gave his opinion on the movements that the club should make for the next season in 2022, in which he highlighted how well his starting pitching and bullpen are doing.
Cone said the Yankees must decide whether to look for an elite shortstop in the market or a defender who allows time for the prospects they have in their minor league system to develop. «Their pitching is among the best, but if they make the right decisions to complete the infield, we will see the club compete for a place in the next playoffs,» he said in an interview with nj.com.
The Yankees are interested in hiring former MLB player Mark Trumbo to join manager Aaron Boone’s staff as an assistant hitting coach, according to a report by Kristie Arckert of the New York Daily News.
However, there are reports that he «does not seem at the moment» to be interested in assuming the position, since he is enjoying his post-retirement life from MLB with his family and «would have to have a very good offer to get away from home. «.
Before the work stoppage began in the MLB, Yankees management asked about the availability of receiver Sean Murphy, according to a report by Ken Rosenthal, who assures that he will be a target of the club again after the strike.
«When they talked about Matt Olson and Matt Chapman with the Athletics, they also mentioned Murphy, who has a better defense than Gary Sanchez and a bat that could do more damage than Kyle Higashioka. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him involved in a trade package before start the season «, details in his report Rosenthal.
