The Yankees are known to be looking for center field help, and the club is considering options at the top of the free agent and trade markets. MLB Network’s Jon Morosi tweets https://twitter.com/jonmorosi/status/1458786244805029890 that the Yankees and Mariners are among the teams interested in acquiring Bryan Reynolds https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/reynobr01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker- from the Pirates, while on the free agent front, NJ.com’s Brendan Kutyhttps://twitter.com/BrendanKutyNJ/status/1458600743099797510 reports that “Starling Marte https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/m/martest01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker- is, at the very least, on the Yankees’ radar.”
This isn’t the first time that the Bronx Bombers have looked into Marte, as the Yankees had some talks https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/07/marlins-starling-marte-end-extension-talks-at-least-three-teams-interested-in-trades.html with the Marlins about a potential swap back in July. Marte ended up being dealt to the A’s, while the Yankees instead augmented their outfield by acquiring Joey Gallo https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/g/gallojo01.shtml?utm_campaign=Linker&utm_source=direct&utm_medium=linker- from the Rangers. As for Reynolds, New York joins the long list of teams who have reportedly asked about Pittsburgh’s All-Star center fielder in the last six months alone — the Astros, Guardians, Marlins, Brewers, and Braves have all been linked to Reynolds, and Seattle tried to deal https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2021/10/mariners-tried-to-trade-for-kris-bryant-bryan-reynolds.html for Reynolds prior to the trade deadline.
