Yankees general manager Brian Cashman may be in the final year of his contract, but his recent moves have ignited a Yankees fanbase to the point where they’re excited for the future. It’s also appears Cashman could find a contract renewal in his future.
It’s hard to imagine just a few years ago, the Yankees had one of the worst farm systems in the Major Leagues. However, Cashman made all the right moves, and by 2017, he ended up giving Yankees fans the second best farm system in all the Majors–only behind the Atlanta Braves who made a plethora of deals during the offseason.
Cashman wouldn’t rule out any of the kids helping the Yankees in 2017. In fact, this year may be the first time we’ll see some of that exciting talent.
“The high ceiling we believe the young guys have,” Cashman said, “we may see some of that ceiling as early as ’17.”
Cashman has said at some point fans could see James Kaprielian, although the team is trying not to rush him back from last season’s flexor tendon injury. It’s also possible fans will see Frazier by September callups.
The kids have played an important part this Spring training, giving the Yankees the best run differential out of all 30 teams entering play on Sunday afternoon.
With that said, the Yankees are ready to see what the future can bring. And if the future looks good for the Yankees, it’s possible the Yankees might decide to renew Cashman’s contract at the end of the 2017 season.
Like I always say: if it’s not broke, don’t fix it.
