3) Yankees starting pitcher Jameson Taillon – Minnesota Twins

After struggling with some injury issues for much of his career, Jameson Taillon has been healthy for the Yankees in the past two seasons and he has been a pretty good pitcher.

For New York in the last two years, he has made 60 starts with 22-11 record, a 4.08 ERA, a 100 ERA+, and an average of 2.1 walks and 8.1 strikeouts per nine innings.

Taillon is entering his age-31 season, though, so with his injury history, the Yankees may decide to pass on signing Taillon long-term.

One team that is in some desperate need of some starting pitching is the Minnesota Twins. They faltered down the stretch but they could be a playoff team in 2023. They did address their rotation some by acquiring Tyler Mahle from the Cincinnati Reds at the trade deadline but they need some more help. Taillon could help them for relatively cheap and probably on a four-year deal.
