Three things the Yankees need to acquire in the offseason that aren’t Manny Machado

The speculation started during the regular season, even prior to his trade from the Baltimore Orioles to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Where would Manny Machado go upon his free agency at the end of the 2018 regular season? And, with that, which teams would be knocking on his door?
No sooner did the Yankees’ regular season come to a close after their fated ending in the American League Division Series, the talks of Machado coming to the Bronx took off as though pushed by a speeding 4 Train behind Yankee Stadium. The truth of the matter is that the rumors started even prior to Machado’s free agency being on the horizon -- they started at the trade deadline.

Report: Yankees to call up #7 prospect Domingo Acevedo

Acevedo, 24, has been fantastic this year in Double-A posting a 2.84 ERA in eleven games (eight starts). With Luis Cessa slated to take German’s spot in the rotation, Acevedo will be used as a reliever where his stuff can play up. During his first stint in the majors, expect to see his fastball that can reach triple digits, which should make him another power reliever in a stacked bullpen.

German was sent down after a disastrous start which saw his starter-ERA blow up above 6.00. He is a talented pitcher, but has some obvious flaws which he can work out in the minors.
