Cashman talks ‘22 needs, FA market, more

Untold amounts of words figure to be spilled upon Carlos Correa and Corey Seager as the top-notch shortstops embark upon the open market. Though Cashman did not specifically mention Correa or Seager by name, he reaffirmed that the Yankees are “obviously” looking at the shortstop market.

Cashman said that he has had two separate conversations with two representatives from the free-agent shortstop group, which also includes Marcus Semien, Trevor Story and Javier Báez. A fallback option would be a one-year stopgap while the Yanks wait for top prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza to develop.

“That’s what I’m going through, to see what’s realistic and what’s not realistic for the free agents—what are their hopes and dreams, not just financial but in terms of landing spots and comfort zone for them and their families,” Cashman said. “Price point clearly will come into play and then we’ll deal with what’s available on the trade front. We’re just trying to get more information so we can try to strategize better over the coming weeks.”

I love Cashman quotes.

If they have faith that at least one of Volpe/Peraza will be ready in 2023 (at least mid-season) then Semien becomes more attractive. I'm not sure he's really a SS at this point and he's getting older but playing him there for 1-1.5 seasons then moving him elsewhere should be fine. I also won't be shocked if one of the SS gets caught in the glut and ends up having to take a 1-year contract. But that requires a lot of faith on the Yanks' part and while Cashman has never been afraid of locking in top prospects who prove themselves, they've got to prove themselves. The Yanks won't gamble on passing up Correa/Seager/Story if their price is right.
