The New York Yankees suffered the worst loss of the season last Saturday in a winning effort. Aaron Judge would leave the game with what was later diagnosed as a left oblique strain. So we look at four potential options to fill in for an injured Aaron Judge
Nicholas Castellanos- Detriot Tigers
The Detriot Tigers are a rebuilding team who are just trying to quantify the assets they have moving forward. They are still under the albatross contract of Miguel Cabrera and don’t have much on a farm system. But the one asset that they still possess is Nicholas Castellanos. Castellanos hasn’t gotten off to the best start this season. But a move to a team looking to contend for a World Series crown might just be the perk up Nicholas needs. A career .274 hitter Castellanos will give the Yankees a player that can not just hit for power but also a decent average as well.
David Peralta- Arizona Diamondbacks
One of the most underrated players in Major League Baseball is that of the Arizona Diamondbacks, David Peralta. The lefty-swinging outfielder would be a welcomed addition to the depleted outfield of the Bronx Bombers. And with the Diamondbacks not expected to compete this season. The Yankees could potentially strike a deal for Peralta. And even when the injured Yankees begin to trickle back, Peralta’s bat would keep him in the lineup.
Derek Dietrich- Cincinnati Reds
Versatility is king in today’s Major League Baseball game as the bullpens are jampacked. Derek Dietrich is currently playing for the last place Cincinnati Reds. And with his ability to play all over the field could add in a level of depth the Yankees are now missing.
Clint Frazier- New York Yankees
Yes, Clint is already a Yankee, and he’s getting a ton of time with all the injuries. But when the injured Yankees start to get healthy, it is imperative that the Yankees management team continue to give Frazier the first opportunity.
