Trade News: Yankees Named Conceivable Exchange Landing Spot for $33 Million…

The New York Yankees have flooded to the highest point of the AL East to begin the season, floated by the hostile effect of Juan Soto and shock commitments from Anthony Volpe and Oswaldo Cabrera.

But veteran Anthony Rizzo, a three-time All-Star, has not shown the kind of slugging power that the team was hoping for, slashing just .240/.313/.307 in 75 at bats so far. His OPS is currently at its lowest mark since his rookie season and if he can’t turn things around offensively the team might seek some help at first base via trade.

Projecting the ideal landing spots for MLB’s top trade targets, Tim Kelly of Bleacher Report floated the Yankees as a trade partner with the Miami Marlins to acquire slugger Josh Bell as a Rizzo replacement.“With the Marlins off to a disastrous start in 2024, there’s a good chance that Bell who is in the final season of a two-year, $33 million deal  will be on the move again this summer,” Kelly wrote. “Bell could also be a fit for the Yakees if Rizzo and/or Giancarlo Stanton don’t heat up.
