Well, we’ve waited since free agency started to finally get a decision from Harper and Machado and it seems we finally have one down. According to Dan Clark, Machado received his final offers from New York, Philadelphia, and and the White Sox and has chosen to wear Pinstripes. This news shouldn’t shock anyone. Manny has been dying to be a Yankee since day one and it’ll be interesting to see how he clicks.
Manny wants to be a shortstop, but the Yankees have Didi. Didi will be out till about August with his Tommy John surgery, but after that I expect Manny to move back to third. Doing this opens a huge door for the Yankees to trade Miguel Andujar and get a starting pitcher. Andujar’s stock will never be higher and the Yankees could pair him and another prospect. I’ll have more out next week once it’s official.
