The Yankees are starting to look at the outfielder's trading market. Not so surprising given the aggressive struggle of Aaron Hicks, especially Joey Gallo.
Juan Soto will be at the top of the outfield wishlist for the big market team, but heremains very unlikely to be available. The Yankees have tried only a few Bryan Reynolds before. It may be on the market. In the extreme seller market, Andrew Benintendi of the Royals, Anthony Santander of the Orioles, Ian Happ of the Cubs are best, with the additional bonus that they are all left-handed or switch hitters. Benintendi will be a free agent from this season onwards, but Santander (free agent after 2024) and Happ (free agent after 2023) will not be free agents.
The amazing Orioles are seen as hesitant to send early sale messages to fans / players by trading non-free agents early. In a nutshell, they will consider trading in Santander. David Peralta of Diamondbacks and Robbie Grossman of the Tigers are other outfielder candidates.
