Matt Shoemaker (LAA)
Let’s face it. The Angels will sell what they can sell. 18.5 games off the pace in the AL West, they will be all ears for just about anything.
With that said, if the Yankees are not going to be quick to pull the trigger and recall Luis Severino, they are going to have to find a solution in the back-end of the rotation.
Although Shoemaker is having a down year thus far, just two years ago he was a 16-game winner and possessed a 3.04 ERA. He is still only 29 and tops any talent the Yanks currently possess in the number 4 and 5 slots of their staff. Long story short: it would be an improvement.
Eligible for arbitration in 2017 and under team control through 2021, the Yankees can have a formidable number three or four starter for the next handful of years. The best part about it is that he will not cost much by any means.
