4. Michael Wacha

Michael Wacha has spent his entire career in a Cardinals uniform since he entered the league in 2013. Coming off a season that saw him pitch only 126.2 innings, Wacha finds himself a free agent for the first time in his career.

Wacha is, however, coming off a rough campaign in which he posted a 4.76 ERA in 24 games. He was moved to the bullpen in May due to a rocky start to the 2019 season but eventually shifted back into the rotation for the stretch run.

With the Yankees interested in starting pitching, Wacha is a low-risk option for the Bombers. He is only 28-years-old  and has a career ERA under 4.00 in 151 career starts. Wacha was an All-Star in 2015, in addition to being crowned the NLCS MVP in 2013.

The Yanks are more than likely looking for postseason experience, and Wacha brings that to the table, even as a younger pitcher.
