$0 — That’s how much the New York Yankees have spent this free agency as we are now in the new year.
Yes, the Yankees did make a $300M offer to Yoshinobu Yamamoto, but that’s all it ever was: an offer.
The Yankees are one of four MLB teams and the only American League team that hasn't spent a single dollar in free agency this offseason, per Jeff Passan.
With over 100 free agents still on the market and New York trading for Juan Soto, Yankee fans shouldn’t worry — Right?
I find it a little concerning that New York is yet to make any signing, especially considering that top free agents such as Blake Snell and Cody Bellinger remain unsigned. I’ve spent more on a 5-pack of baseball cards yesterday than the Yankees have spent in free agency this offseason.
Despite the lack of moves I do believe that GM Brian Cashman will work his magic and sign a free agent sooner rather than later. Seeing the un-urgent Yankees though makes it hard to imagine the team go out and sign a top free agent.
We know the Pinstripes have been in contact with Gio Urshela, but so have the Mets who have equally as much money as their cross-town rivals. Besides Urshela and Yamamoto, the Yankees have been quiet on the market.
