The Yankees have been trying to sign a new, veteran contract to possibly replace the elite prospect

The New York Yankees certainly have been busy trying to add to the roster ahead of the Opening Day.

New York made a plethora of moves with the biggest being landing Juan Soto in a blockbuster trade with the San Diego Padres. The Yankees have upgraded depth throughout the club as well.

The Yankees had an underwhelming 2023 campaign but clearly are going all-in on the 2024 season. New York still is busy looking for ways to improve.

Former top prospect Oswald Peraza is expected to play a large role with the team in 2024 and currently is dealing with an injury and also hasn’t been able to get on track at the big league level.

Because of this, the Yankees have shown interest in other infielders to possibly take his spot, and one player they pursued but missed out on is former New York Mets, Cleveland Guardians, and Los Angeles Dodgers infielder Amed Rosario, according to the New York Post’s Joel Sherman.

“The Yankees insist that they still hold Oswald Peraza in high regard,” Sherman said. “Privately, they will let it be known that it is actually symbolic of how much they still believe in him that they tried during spring training to sign Enrique Hernández, which became public, and Amed Rosario, which is being reported here for the first time.

“The Yankees were told from the outset that Hernández’s preference was to return to the Dodgers and that he was willing to wait and see if Los Angeles could trade Manuel Margot (which it did, to Minnesota) to open the roster spot/dollars for him to sign (which he did for $4 million). The Yankees, I am told, had the same $4 million on the table for Rosario, who instead took a $1.5 million base from the (Tampa Bay Rays).”

Signing the veteran infielder could’ve gone a long way for the Yankees but it sounds like they’re going to have to look elsewhere if they want to add more depth.
