    Been pushingforthis trade for some time, Stanton becomes best DH in NL, Yellich given chance to revive career in the Bronx.

  2. Andrew Carter

    This trade undoubtedly makes the Yankees worse. Stanton is a very valuable bat with obvious injury concerns, but his ceiling is far higher than Yelich. 3 of the Yankees top 8 prospects are outfielders, 4 if you count Wells, who is likely to make the move to the outfield. I don’t see the Yankees tying up another outfield spot through 2028 with guys like Dominguez, Spencer Jones, and Austin Wells thriving in the minors.

    • Russell Bogart

      Stanton hit only 211 last year and can only DH. The Yanks are tied to him for about the same length as the Yelich contract. Yelich gives them a much needed left handed bat, more positional flexibility and better defense when he plays the OF compared to Stanton. Yelich’s positional flexibility over Stanton creates more opportunity for the younger players because he could slide over to CF, play LF in a pinch and allow someone like Rizzo to DH which could provide Wells at bats at first. Yelich’s numbers will probably improve in YS with no shifts.

      • Andrew Carter

        Yelich was a ground ball machine last year (59%, league average 44.9%) and was a horrible defensive outfielder (14th percentile, -5 OAA). His best skill, drawing walks (which he is pretty elite at) doesn’t make up for his inability to hit for power, and his bad defense will only get worse when playing in Yankee Stadium’s massive left field. Yelich was only shifted on about 30% of the time last year, so you shouldn’t expect a huge boost to his stats next year, unless he starts hitting the ball in the air again.
