If a trade is on the table, the Yankees front office should live with moving these prospects.
With the start of the MLB season inching closer, it’s already time to think about what moves the New York Yankees could make to bolster their roster.
With a loaded farm system, New York certainly possesses the assets to make a splash in the coming months at the trade deadline. Whether that be for another arm in the rotation, a handful of relievers to further strengthen the bullpen, or a bat to provide even more pop to an unmatched lineup, there are plentiful options.
One of the most intriguing aspects of the Yankees farm is that many of their top prospects still enjoying their teenage years. These players are far too young to move on from just yet, including “The Martian” Jasson Dominguez — who has been compared to Mike Trout and Mickey Mantle — as well as Kevin Alcantara.
Aside from the uber-talented teenagers, nearly every other Yankee prospect should be at the very least considered in trade talks if it means capturing a World Series in 2020 or 2021.
With a shortened season, there’s no telling what the trade deadline could look like come Aug. 31, but if general manager Brian Cashman is looking to put New York’s roster over the top, these prospects should be involved in the talks.
