New York Yankees’ Marketable Offseason Trade Pieces

Brett Gardner

Coming off an uneven campaign, Gardner still provides quality of toughness, essentially a grind-it-out mentality, to any team. In the process, he can be a productive No. 2 hitter with a great glove in either left or center field.

At 33 years of age, he also brings a veteran presence to the table, with valuable postseason experience. He is the perfect fit for a team looking for outfield help, but not willing to break the bank.

If the Yankees look to get guys such as Mason Williams, Aaron Hicks (in an everyday role) and, most importantly, Clint Frazier involved, their nine-year marriage with Gardner must come to an end.

Additionally, it will provide the flexibility of sliding Didi Gregorius and Starlin Castro into the top spots in the lineup more regularly.
