Neil Walker, 2B/UT, Free Agent
After loosing out on Todd Frazier to the cross-town rival Mets, Cashman could swoop in and take their incredibly productive former starting second basemen.
Last season, Walker split time between the Mets and Milwaukee Brewers. He slashed .265/.362/.801 with 14 home runs and 49 RBI.
Signing the Pennsylvania native isn’t a no brainier because he would command a salary near $10 MM and his defense is just average to below-average. The Yankees have the bats they need, so adding another one shouldn’t be front of mind.
With that said, he would add depth in a position of potential need. He simply is the current free agent makes the most sense for the Yankees to sign.
