In less than two weeks, MLB training camps will open, and at this point, it’s clear what teams will look like on Opening Day. This also includes the New York Yankees.
The Bronx team’s management continues to look for pieces to strengthen their pitching staff for the Major League campaign, and they maintain their goal, although some pieces have eluded them on the market.
They have also not managed to complete a trade deal for Venezuelan infielder Gleyber Torres, and that raises doubts about whether they can retain him before the deadline. Of course, moves can’t be ruled out in the coming days, but there doesn’t seem to be any urgency given the arrivals of Juan Soto and Marcus Strowman.
,We like what we have; we’re excited about what we have in store.”general manager Brian Cashman said recently. But no one will give us the trophy. We have to go out and earn it. The only way to earn it and have all the talent and all the insurance policies in place is to have them in place. so let’s get the job done.
With Soto leading the offense with captain Aaron Judge and Gerrit Cole at the front of the rotation, there is some reason to believe New York can turn the page on the 2023 failure. They may have lost some pieces in a solid bullpen, but they can still be confident that the department will be able to get the job done.
According to MLB.com, the Yankees’ 26-man roster for the 2024 season could look like this:
pitchers: Gerrit Cole, Carlos Rodon, Marcus Stroman, Nestor Cortes, Clark Schmidt, Clay Holmes (closer), Scott Efros, Mexican Victor Gonzalez, Ian Hamilton, Tommy Kahnle, Jonathan Loaisiga, Ron Marinaccio, and Luke Weaver.
catchers:Jose Trevino and Austin Wells.
infielders: DJ LeMahieu, Oswald Peraza, Gleyber Torres, Anthony Rizzo, and Anthony Volpe.
outfielders: Osvaldo Cabrera, Trent Grisham, Aaron Judge, Juan Soto, and Alex Verdugo.
