In trading for Garrett Cooper last week, the Yankees would love to say they have their solution at first base. The rookie is hitting .286 in four games with three doubles and an RBI, but he is a 26-year-old rookie, and it’s hard to imagine the Yankees betting on Cooper asthe long-term fix at first.Greg Bird is the obvious solution at first base for the Yanks, but after it came out that the Yankees’ prospect is set for foot surgery in the coming days, it is likely he will nothelp the team this season.Now the Yankees must look for other longer-term solutions likeMets first baseman Lucas Duda or even the A’s Yonder Alonso.According to the New York Post, Yankees Tom Glavine Jersey scouts were in attendance for Duda’s 16th home run in the Mets’ 6-3 lo s to the Cardinals Monday night. Duda is on pace to hit a career-high in home runsin one of the least hitter-friendly parks in all of baseball at Citi Field.It was reported a few weeks agothe Yankees were looking into acquiring Duda and that the Mets may be Bob Uecker Jersey willing to deal him. It should also be noted that while Duda is playing well, the Mets are not, and tradingDuda would open up a path to the majors for Mets’ prized prospect Dominic Smith, who is widely regarded as a plus hitter andfirst baseman.At the same time the trade would net prospects that the Mets desperately need, it just depends on what they would get back for Duda. Maybe a couple of middling prospects or one bordering on the better Yankee prospects like a Chance Adams or a Justus Sheffield. Though that may be a little bit bold.As for Alonso, MLB.com reported the Yankees are looking into acquiring him as well.#Yankees, #Athletics discu sing Yonder Alonso, sources confirm. @Ken_Rosenthal reported on activity between the teams yesterday. @MLB Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) July 18, 2017It is unclear which player would cost more though. While Alonso is having an All-Star season, Freddie Freeman Jersey the two players arepretty comparable and both are free agents after the season. It just depends on who the Yankees truly want, because if they decide they want to go get one of them, they have the prospects to do it.
