Yankees made $4 million offer to infielder, according to

Following the news that the New York Yankees had an interest in Enrique Hernandez, they made him a $4 million offer before he ended up signing with the Los Angeles Dodgers. According to Joel Sherman, the offer they made to Hernandez was also made to Amed Rosario before he signed with the Tampa Bay Rays. While the Yankees offered more guaranteed money, to the 28-year-old infield, the playing time he could get with the Rays was enough to sway his opinion despite the contract offers.

While both Hernandez and Rosario have found themselves on other teams, the message that’s been consistent is that the Yankees are looking to upgrade their bench. The 23-year-old infielder posted a 53 wRC+ and -0.3 fWAR across 52 games, and when he got a full-time role as their starting third baseman down the stretch, he was similarly unimpressive. What the Bronx Bombers are looking for is someone who can reliably start in a pinch, and they don’t think that Peraza will be prepared for everyday at-bats without consistent playing time in Triple-A.
