“Young and left-handed outfield” profile that Yankees want, Lee Jung-hoo itself

Can Lee Jung-hoo (Kiwoom Heroes) become a member of the New York Yankees, the most prestigious club in Major League Baseball? It’s clear that the Yankees are after Lee Jung-hoo.

According to MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, the Yankees are planning to be very aggressive in the upcoming winter meetings.

The Yankees are specifically looking for at least two young, preferably left-handed hitting outfielders, and Lee fits that profile.굿모닝토토 도메인

MLB.com reports that the Yankees are feeling a sense of crisis, saying, “In the 37 days since the season ended, Yankees owner Hal Steinbrenner has directed general manager Brian Cashman to hold intensive meetings to get to the bottom of the problems that led to their lowest winning percentage since 1992 and just 82 wins for the season.

The reinforcements are expected to come from all corners of the pitching staff. It is certain that they will spend at least $200 million on Japanese ace Yoshinobu Yamamoto (Orix).

As MLB.com notes, “The Yamamoto signing is good news. However, the Yankees ranked 25th in the majors in runs scored in 2023. The offense is in desperate need of a boost. Cashman said he is looking for two outfielders, preferably left-handed hitters, to go with the jersey.

Steinbrenner dropped another hint: “You’re going to see our team get younger,” he said.

MLB.com mentions Cody Bellinger, Juan Soto, Jung-Hoo Lee, and Kevin Kiermaier. Of the players listed, Kiermaier has the best defense, but he’ll be 34 next year. Also, Bellinger and Jung-Hoo Lee are eligible for free agency, while Soto would have to be acquired via trade.

MLB.com reports, “With the San Diego Padres rumored to be a possible destination for Soto, the Yankees have been reaching out to explore a possible trade. The addition of Soto would be an instant turnaround for the Yankees.

The Yankees are believed to be looking to acquire at least two of Bellinger, Soto, and Lee. Bellinger and Soto are the biggest names in free agency and the trade market, respectively, so a Bellinger-Jung-Hoo or Soto-Jung-Hoo combination is likely.
