Breaking Down the Yankees Top Five Most Logical Additions for 2018

First and foremost, acquiring an elite pitcher as such as Archer will not come cheap. Should the Tampa Bay Rays ask for Gleyber Torres, Estevan Florial, or Justus Sheffield, it would not be in the Yankees best interest to make a deal. Trading a combination of Jordan Montgomery, Clint Frazier, Miguel Andujar and Chance Adams should be enough to acquire the All-Star starter.

Chris is signed to an affordable $6.2M in 2018, $7.5M in 2019, a $9M team option in 2020 (with a $1.8M buyout), and a $11M in 2021. That’s four whole seasons of a cost-controllable ace-type starting pitcher.

Archer has proved he can pitch successfully in the American League East and has become an absolute workhorse for the Rays.
