Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Yankees try to get him


For the Yankees, after the loss to the Red Sox in the playoffs, anything seemed possible. It had to brew within the organization, especially at the level of payroll.

But eventually Aaron Boone will be back and the money won’t be used to sign a big shortstop. Everything suggests that the two big names remaining (Carlos Correa and Trevor Story) will go elsewhere than in the Bronx and that the historic contracts, we leave them to the Rangers.

Interestingly, clubs like the Tigers and Rangers are at the heart of the shortstop player file and the Yankees and Astros are not. Will this force other players to stand up?

The Dodgers, who are having a bad offseason, will they join the race?

But OK. All this to say that the Yankees will still have to find an alternative since the young hopefuls of the organization will not be able to play in New York at the start of the 2022 season.

The name of Andrelton Simmons still circulates in New York, but we must also add that of Isiah Kiner-Falefa, of the Rangers.

The odds of him being traded by the Rangers are good for obvious reasons, but he won’t necessarily be by tomorrow. Why? Because the transaction market is slowing down.

Obviously, we go from « Corey Seager and Carlos Correa » to « Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Andrelton Simmons » in New York. That’s absolutely not what the Yankees fans had in mind, is it?

With Kyle Seager also linked to the Rangers, infielders like Kiner-Falefa and prospects like Charles Leblanc shouldn’t find her funny. That said, the club will be exciting in 2022.

And meanwhile, Brian Cashman has the means to fulfill his ambitions, but doesn’t budge like he did before. I can’t wait to see if, in the long run, this will pay off.

10th Round
  • Kris Bryant in Colorado? The Rockies would like to sign Trevor Story, depending on what’s going on… what’s going on?
  • Minor signature in Boston.
