The Yankees initially shifted their focus from pursuing Blake Snell to securing a deal with Marcus Stroman due to significant differences in negotiations. However, reports indicate that the Yankees maintain a strong interest in Snell and are awaiting a potential drop in his asking price. Despite his impressive track record, Snell’s inconsistency has likely contributed to the gap between his camp and interested teams. One suggested solution is a shorter contract with a higher annual salary, potentially surpassing recent deals signed by pitchers like Trevor Bauer.

Although the Yankees have a solid rotation with Gerrit Cole, Carlos Rodon, and Nestor Cortes Jr., adding Snell would strengthen their pitching depth. Nonetheless, Stroman’s signing has bolstered their rotation, with Clarke Schmidt as a viable option for the fifth spot. While the Yankees are interested, other teams like the Angels, Giants, Phillies, and Blue Jays are also potential suitors for Snell if his price lowers. Additionally, new clubs could emerge if Snell considers short-term offers with higher annual salaries.
