    Yankees Potential Free Agent Target: Eduardo Rodríguez

    It's the early days of the offseason yet, but it sounds almost certain that the Yankees will be adding pitching via the free agent market, having already been connected to both the Yoshinobu Yamamoto sweepstakes and, on a less splashy level, old rotation stalwart Jordan Montgomery. Given his recent playoff heroics — and the bad taste left over from the failure of the trade that sent him to St. Louis for Harrison Bader — Montgomery will certainly be an attractive target for teams and fans alike. Let's talk about Eduardo Rodríguez, who's now free to sign anywhere after opting out of the final three years of the deal he signed with Detrot prior to the 2022 season. To get to the point, the main hook for E-Rod is simply that he was a very solid pitcher last year — the kind the Yankees desperately could have used in lieu of 20+ starts of Jhony Brito, Randy Vásquez, and Luke Weaver — and he's projected to be more or less the exact same pitcher in 2024.
