Yankees Starting Pitching Target and Odds They Get Them:

The Yankees are 100% focused on getting more starting pitching. Here are their targets and the likelihood they get them:

Yankees starting rotation

Wee will go pitcher by pitcher from the most likely down on the available and confirmed Yankees targets and give a % chance. Both free agents and trade market.

RHP Luis Castillo – Reds: 8o%

Industry sources maintain the talks between the Yankees and Reds have never ceased or slowed down. I remain high on the chances for now. I am still confident something is moving here.

RHP Trevor Bauer – FA: 68%

Until he signs the Yankees will have high chances. The Angels or Dodgers are where I expect him to land.

I will never count the Yankees out. They can get creative with a signing bonus and low salary to avoid the tax hit!

The Yankees tried to acquire him 4 times already and this offseason is no different.

LHP Brandon – Woodruff: 65%

He’s a long known Yankees target but not likely moved. The Yankees have had talks for him the last 3 years. There’s a chance. A slim one.

LHP Marco GonzalesM’s: 65%

I would rank this one far higher if there was any inclination the M’s were open to trading him. A history of THE Yankees trading with the M’s for SP puts him this high ALONE.

RHP Jameson Taillon – PIRATES: 60%

The Yankees are in talks for him but he is a project. I would rank him far higher if not for that! I can easily see this one happening if the Yankees decide to take on this project.

RHP Jon Gray – COL 50%

A longtime Yankees target. I just don’t think it happens. Not expecting it in the least bit!

LHP Kyle Freeland – COL: 50%

Another very, VERY unlikely option,. Without taking Arenado and overpaying just not happening.

RHP Jake Odorizzi – FA: 50%

I just can’t see the Yankees really biting here. His demands are just to hi.

RHP Kyle Hendricks – CHC: 5%

The Cubs are not open to trading him. They still want to contend and will try too. He’s staying unless the Yankees massively overpay.

RHP Masahiro Tanaka – FA: 1%

He’s demanding WAY to much. He’s gone! Returning to Japan.

LHP James Paxton – FA: 0%

Another one that’s not happening period! He’s on his way home to Canada and the Blue Jays according to reports.

SUMMERY:

Outside of these there’s no other options. The markets are otherwise very, VERY baron. If I had to guess again I still with Castillo and Tallion as the Yankees moves.
