New York Yankees Interested in Veteran Outfielder

The Yankee assαssin.

According to Mark Feinsand of, the New York Yankees are interested in trading for Colorado Rockies outfielder Randall Grichuk.

The Yankees are keeping a careful eye on the corner outfield market, and while Cody Bellinger seems like a natural match, sources have also mentioned the Rockies’ Randal Grichuk. He will earn slightly more than $3M for the remainder of the season as an approaching free agent, Feinsand tweeted.

The Yankees are in dιre need of outfield corner assistance. Aaron Judge, a standout player, is still expected to need some time to recover from a toe ιnjury, and the Yankees started the season with a gaping hole in left field.

Grichuk, 31, is only hitting.300 with a.837 OPS in 203 at-bats while only hitting five home runs this season.

After their most recent loss on Sunday, the Yankees are now in last place in the American League East. Additionally, they are two games away from the final Wild Card place.

Grichuk would be a good choice to fill out left field if the Yankees are unable to obtain Bellinger.

Yankees vow to not let latest troubling loss linger

A defeat like the one the Yankees experienced on Sunday gave the impression of being a contest that would have lasting consequences.

The Yankees, though, vowed to prove it immediately after the incident that they would not allow it to happen, and they set out on Monday to do it.

“Morale is fine,” manager Aaron Boone remarked on Sunday following the devastating 8-7, 11-inning loss to the Rockies at Coors Field. “Look, we’re to blame. What’s in front of us is known to us. We are aware of the demands on us. We can discuss it. Everyone will talk about it, I’m sure of it. We must move forward.

“We have a blank slate in front of us on which to write our own script. That is what we are diligently pursuing.

The Yankees have so far deviated significantly from the course they had planned in spring training.

They were tied for last place with the Red Sox in the AL East going into Monday’s game against the Angels, 94 games into the season.

Even while the expanded playoff system provides the Yankees a bit more leeway, their window of opportunity to turn things around is getting smaller by the day. The Yankees were also two games shy of the final wild-card spot. “I just don’t think there’s time to be in disbelief,” said Anthony Rizzo, whose protracted slump and diminished power at the plate have contributed to the Yankees’ greater lineup issues. “You just have to keep working hard and play better baseball overall. Together, let’s work on offense.

Since winning four straight games from May 27 to 30, the Yankees have not won three straight games.

The Yankees have won back-to-back games five times since then, but haven’t been able to convert that into a genuine hot streak. This time period also happens to be when Aaron Judge was placed on the injured list after ripping a ligament in his big right toe on June 3.
