New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are already a juggernaut. Imagine if they had a center fielder…
In theory, the Yankees have found a solution in center. Aaron Judge has not only been incredible with the lumber, but he has impressed defensively. While he is not the Gold Glove caliber outfielder he is in right, he has more than held his own in a more defensive oriented position.
Adding Ramon Laureano would have a domino effect for New York. Judge would be able to go back to right, a position he is more comfortable with. Marwin Gonzalez could theoretically head to left, pushing Joey Gallo and his struggling bat to the bench. As Laureano would be under team control for the following two years, that would allow the Yankees to turn Aaron Hicks into a fourth outfielder, provided that he is healthy.
Although they are reportedly refusing to entertain offers for either of their top shortstop prospects, the Yankees could have pieces to intrigue the A’s. Luis Gil has electric stuff but also a great deal of reliever risk. Adding a couple of other prospects to a player such as Gil could work.
The New York Yankees could use an option in center field. Ramon Laureano may be the missing piece in their lineup.
