It’s not a secret in MLB that the number one priority of New York Yankees is to re-sign Aaron Judge, but they have other goals this winter.

Although it is known that the contract of the MVP of the american league it will occupy a good part of their budget, in the Bronx they are looking for a first-rate starter.

The candidates are Carlos Rodón and Justin VerlanderAlthough with the latter they are not very optimistic, this is confirmed by a report by Jon Heyman for MLB Network.

“The Yankees are looking for Rodón and Verlander. Judge is still the main target, but there also seems to be room to add a great starter,” Heyman said.

Competition for New York increased after Jacob deGrom signed with the Rangers on Friday.
