Add Brandon Belt to the list of potential lefty bat and first base options linked to the New York Yankees. According to various reports in the New York Post and NJ.com, the Yankees are being linked to the San Francisco Giants veteran, who also has experience playing the outfield.
Belt, 31, is also a two-time World Series champion.
Yet, in 2019, Belt registered a 0.6 WAR, raking lower than Mike Ford’s 0.9 and Luke Voit’s 1.9.
So the question begs, would the Bronx Bombers be adding a veteran name and his $34.4 million due across the next two seasons in the hopes that the short porch would play much better to his swing than splashing one into McCovey cove?
