3. Daniel Hudson

After finishing the 2019 season as a World Series champion, Daniel Hudson finds himself a free agent. Hudson had a 9-3 record with a 2.47 ERA to go along with eight saves.

With the Yankees possibly losing a valuable piece of the bullpen in Dellin Betances, they may be looking to add to their already solid bullpen.

The Yankees have already retained the services of their closer Aroldis Chapman and could add another setup man that can pitch in several different scenarios (similar to a Zack Britton role), especially if a front-line starter isn’t signed.

A two-year-deal would more than likely be the best option for the 32-year-old Hudson, who will be 33 at the start of the 2020 season.

If the Yankees believe that Betances is too much a risk given his two separate injuries in 2019 and only two-thirds of an inning pitched, Hudson could be the ideal go-to man.
