The Yankees will doubtless be with out Luis Severino till at the very least Could and CC Sabathia will in all probability begin the season on the injured checklist, so it is smart why they might have their eye on some assist.
Gonzalez, 33, is the image of well being as he has by no means missed vital time with elbow or shoulder accidents throughout his time in MLB.
He’s coming off a season wherein he tossed 171 innings for the Nationals and Brewers marking his ninth straight season wherein he has thrown at the very least 158.
He threw a simulated recreation together with one other free-agent lefty in Dallas Keuchel on Friday, nevertheless it stays to be seen how shut he’s to being able to go for the beginning of the season as he stays unsigned simply 5 days earlier than the beginning of the yr.
New York’s beginning rotation will characteristic James Paxton, J.A. Happ and Masahiro Tanaka for positive to start the season. A number of different candidates might match into the fourth and fifth slots.
