Seems to me maybe the Yankees have a long range plan for Wade. They have really stuck with him, and the more he plays the better he gets.  Like they say speed never goes into a slump, and I notice when he gets on base things happen.  Heard some more about teams asking for Andujar today and I even got a notice on my MLB @ bat app the Braves are making some noise about him. I still think he isn't going anywhere. Funny how nothing has been said or rumored or mentioned about Frazier, it's like he doesn't exist. Not sure what his trade value is at this point. I have a feeling that they will try and showcase him in S T.





CORRECTION: That was Didi the Braves were asking about through his agent, not Andujar. My bad. Andujar was just mention as : teams are also asking about Andujar, but no specific teams were mentioned.

That's interesting. Seems they'd have an interest in Andujar rather than Didi, considering Josh Donaldson is a FA and they look to be set at SS with Dansby Swanson.

I don't think any top tier team has a ton of interest in Andujar as a 3rd baseman. Left side of the infield is too important defensively. Not saying no interest in Andujar just not as a 3rd baseman

seems like a natural move to me bomber. Fewer throws from a 1st baseman with some quickness to have some range at 1st. Like you said Voit and Ford don't seem to be gold glovers at 1st. I'm not knocking them I just don't feel they are the type players that need to be guarenteed a starting position. They're not kids and close to career minor leaguers




Andujar in my opinion is a hitting machine, and I agree that the Yankees should make him their everyday 1Bman. But I haven't heard that the Yankees are even thinking about moving him to 1B.




Cashman mentioned 1st base and left field for Andujar at the GM meetings last week

I'll probably regret even bringing this up for discussion, but is it possible the speedy, slick fielding, LH contact hitter is already with the club in the person of...Tyler Wade? We're all aware of his past offensive struggles, but he showed a little spark toward the end of the season.  





You read my mind. If Wade can hit he would give the Yankees something they don't have now which is a natural lead-off hitter entering his prime years.

That would be a great situation for the Yankees to find themsleves in, but Wade's history even in the minors gives little indication that he will ever be much of a MLB hitter. Although there have been some guys who got better in the majors, Robinson Cano being one example.

until september wade was still hitting .200. went on tear in september against the expanded rosters but still don't trust him. hard to make a judgement based on 25 AB. be great if he turned out to be the player he was projected to be because his speed and versatility would be assets.

Wade's Triple A stats are pretty good.

Wade with steady AB's would be a good to great leadoff guy I think. The trouble is where or how does he get them. Again this brings up the domino effect. Basically so far the Yankees have 10LBS they are trying to squeeze into a 5 LB bag. I believe they will take some guys and send them to AAA after ST and unfortunately when the IL hits some of the guys bring them up. It's better than losing them IMO. After ST I know they will take the guys that display the goods and the rest will have to be on the SWB shuffle. 

you miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
