Yankees Think About Trading Mike Tauchman

The New York Yankees are reportedly fielding offers for outfielder Mike Tauchman, and it’s safe to say there is no shortage of interest.

Per reports, the Yankees may be seeking a relief pitcher in return, or at least a player with a long contract who can be part of the team’s future as well as the present.

None of this is exactly a major development. Tauchman probably won’t see much regular playing time, as he’s likely behind Clint Frazier, Aaron Hicks, Aaron Judge, Brett Gardner and Giancarlo Stanton.

Veterans Jay Bruce and Derek Dietrich are also trying to make it with the Yankees.

So it’s nothing personal with Tauchman. It just comes down to business and fielding the best possible outfit. Tauchman was fantastic in 2019 when the Yankees acquired him from the Rockies, but he was just so-so last season, which pretty much placed him back in the shuffle. It appears that now, he just may be the odd man out.
