Yankees prospect Anthony Volpe confessed that he is having a great time as he looks forward to the start of the 2022 MLB season as the Mules’ main promise.
Volpe grew up in the New York area as a Yankees fan. Therefore, for him, it is a great opportunity to be part of the future of this organization.
He lives his day to day with happiness and does not pay attention to the rumors that place Carlos Correa in Los Mulos. If the Puerto Rican reaches the currency, his future is complicated because he plays at shortstop.
The MLB free agency starter market still has options for teams in need of pitching. The New York Yankees are in this group and a player who could add to the roster is the Dominican Johnny Cueto.
Although he has had problems with his arm in the past, Cueto may be a decent pitcher for the latter part of the Mules’ rotation. In 2021 he finished with a 4.08 ERA in 114.2 innings with the San Francisco Giants.
The MLB stoppage does not rule out the possibility of continuing to study options for pitching for the Yankees, especially in relief. Aroldis Chapman could need help or be discarded after the 2022 campaign. Faced with this eventual contingency, Kenley Jansen from Curaçao could be the solution.
Jansen is a free agent and the Mules could sign him for two or three seasons to add him to the relief and make him more effective. Then, it could be the insurance in case Chapman leaves.
