Yankee first basemen own a .235/.314/.385 slash line in that span with a wRC of 86 — the worst among Major League teams — thanks to a sub par season from Mark Teixeira last year, multiple Greg Bird injuries and back ups forced to step in.

While Chase Headley stepped in and is performing up to par in 44 games since moving primarily to first base .326/.402/.563 slash line since July 20 , 2018 very well could experience a fall off yet again.

Bird is struggling since his return from the disabled list 9 for 37 since August 26 and Headley will likely shift back over to third base as Todd Frazier‘s contract at year’s end. There are some names general manager Brian Cashman could turn to free agency in order to prevent another fall off, but the name they like the most might not be a realistic option.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, New York “likes” Kansas City Royals’ first baseman Eric Hosmer very much, but the desire to remain below the luxury tax threshold may “prevent them from making a big run at Hosmer” when he hits the free agent market this winter.

In 140 games this season Andrew Miller Jersey, the 27 year old is slashing .319/.385/.507 with 24 home runs and an OPS of .892 — the eighth best among qualified Major League first basemen. The Yankees expressed interest this past July but weren’t in a position to ship prospects for a rental.
Next season, it’s likely they remain patient with Bird after an insanely frustrating 2017 season. Whether they trust him to tap into the potential he demonstrated in 2015 or not, he is making 545,500 this year and likely close to league minimum next year. Avoiding a hefty investment in Hosmer while continuing to assess Bird could provide clarity to their pursuit of the stacked 2018 19 free agent class

Other Yankees’ Notes

New York’s second best prospect, Clint Frazier, continued his rehab assignment with the Trenton Thunder on Saturday night and went 0 for 5 with three strikeouts against the Binghampton Rumble Ponies. He is now 2 for 17 .118 with 10 strikeouts in four games in Double A and could return to the Yankees as early as next week. The 23 year old last played on August 8 before suffering an oblique strain.
According to Ben Badler of Baseball America, the Yankees signed 16 year old shortstop Ronny Rojas to a 1 million contract on Saturday. Rojas was the 11th best international prospect according to MLB Pipeline in 2017.
