Yankees consider replacing Eric Chavez with Mark Trumbo

Earlier this week, we learned that the Yankees were losing a pawn in Eric Chavez, who was leaving the organization before even playing a game there as an assistant to the batting coach.

Chavez was promoted by the other New York-based team, the Mets, as he became the roster’s batting coach.

That being said, the Yankees will have to find a new face before activities resume, and the name of a former Majors is being heard.

According to information from Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News, Mark Trumbo is being watched by the Bronx Bombers. The latter played his last game in 2019 due to numerous injuries, after ten seasons spent in the best ball league on the planet.

Trumbo has enjoyed quite a bit of success in MLB during his ten-year career. It was mainly for his 47 home runs and his batting championship in 2016 that he stood out, in addition to the fact that he appeared in the All-Star Game twice.

He also got his hands on a Silver Stick during this famous campaign where he hit 47.

Also according to the journalist’s information, the problem in the eyes of the Yankees, for now, is that there is nothing to indicate that Trumbo is interested in returning to this intense life as a member of an MLB team.

The schedule, the many moves… It can be difficult for anyone, especially someone who played their last game less than three years ago and is now comfortably settled with their family at home.

In the end, it will be up to him to make a decision whether the Yankees, division rival of his years in Baltimore, do offer him the job.

Known for his power, Trumbo could certainly come and help a guy like Aaron Judge or Giancarlo Stanton, two guys of the same style.
