1. Andujar to the Braves

Bottom line, the Yankees have to send Miguel Andujar somewhere he can contribute.

Outside of Gerrit Cole and Jordan Montgomery, the Yankees starting rotation is in shambles. James Paxton’s looks like a shell of his 2019 self after offseason back surgery and JA Happ owns a 10.29 ERA through two starts.

Though New York’s farm system has slew of talented hurlers, most of them — other than Clarke Schmidt, if we’re being honest — still need a year or two before they can be trusted on the big stage. You can never have too much pitching, and the Yanks could look to exploit the Atlanta Braves’ sheer abundance of talented young arms.

There’s zero chance that Atlanta parts ways with Ian Anderson or Kyle Wright, but the club could be convinced to unload left-hander Tucker Davidson, who MLB.com ranks as the Braves’ No. 10 overall prospect. New York could look to include any one of Atlanta’s 21 through 23 ranked youngsters:  third baseman CJ Alexander, first baseman Bryce Ball or outfielder Greyson Jenista.

Tucker Davidson would be a quality addition for the Yankees.

The Braves’ offense is firing on all cylinders right now, but you have to think that it will feel the loss of Josh Donaldson, who left in free agency this offseason, at some point. Andujar would simply be a perfect long-term fit alongside the likes of Ronald Acuña Jr. and Ozzie Albies.
