‘Cole was injured, but Seeds was sold…’ Yankees interested in re

The Yankees are interested in signing Lorenzen.

The official major league website reported on the 15th (Korea time) that the New York Yankees are interested in free agent (FA) right-hander Michael Lorenzen.

The Yankees faced an emergency last year when Cy Young Award-winning ace Gerrit Cole was injured. Cole recently suffered a right elbow injury and is expected to miss at least a month.

Carlos Rodón, who signed a large free agent contract last year, fell short of the first year of his contract, and many pitchers, including Michael King, who took off last year, were sent to San Diego to sign Juan Soto, which thinned the starting pitching base.

With the exception of Marcus Stroman, who was recently hired as a free agent, the Yankees have no reliable pitchers. Rodan was a minor league player last year, and Nestor Cortes also had poor performance last season. In the end, the Yankees had no choice but to turn their attention away.

The Yankees discussed a Dylan Sheath trade with the Chicago White Sox, but the White Sox sent Sheath to San Diego in a surprise trade with the San Diego Padres on the 14th. Blake Snell and Jordan Montgomery, the biggest starters this offseason, still remain in the free agent market, but their agents are Scott Boras. Boras is virtually demanding undue contracts in mid-March, when free agents are at the "edge." The Yankees, who have already been "behaved" by Rodan, Boras' client, do not want to hold large-scale negotiations with Boras.

Against this backdrop, Lorenzen is on the radar of the Yankees. Born in 1992, Lorenzen was 32 years old when he made his big league debut in 2015 and played for nine seasons. He played 724 innings in 342 games, recording 40 wins and 38 losses with an ERA of 4.11.

Lorenzen was selected as an American League All-Star in the first half of last year for the Detroit Tigers, although he has been a starter and bullpen throughout his career and has never played in regular innings as a starter. However, Lorenzen, who recorded five wins, seven losses and a 3.58 ERA in 18 games and 105.2 innings in Detroit, was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies in the second half of the year, and after the transfer, he was sluggish with four wins, two losses and a 5.51 ERA in 11 games and 47.1 innings.

The White Sox, who traded seeds and created a gap on the mound, are also known to be interested in recruiting Lorenzen. Attention is focusing on whether the Yankees will take Lorenzen's hand.
