The New York Yankees will be one of the most scrutinized teams during free agency.

After losing in the ALCS to the Houston Astros, everyone is wondering what they will do to improve.

New York already made their first big signing of free agency by bringing back Anthony Rizzo on a two-year deal.

But, Rizzo can not be the only deal the Yankees make this offseason.

Here are two additional moves the Yankees should make.


1. Re-Sign AL MVP Aaron Judge

The Yankees had the best player in baseball on their team last season.

Aaron Judge put together a historic season and was awarded the AL MVP.

It is rare for a player coming off an MVP to hit free agency, but that is happening with Judge.

The Yankees made a mistake by not re-signing Judge before last season and now his price skyrocketed.

Despite being 30 years old Judge should become one of the highest-paid players in baseball this offseason.

New York can not afford to let their best player leave.

Not only will they be a worse baseball team without Judge.

But, they will be losing a player that is one of the faces of baseball and that their fans love.

This is a no-brainer for the Yankees and they must bring Judge back.


2. Sign Ace Justin Verlander

The Yankees need to go all-in this upcoming season.

They have not made a World Series appearance since 2009, and need to show their fans they are committed to winning.

Signing Judge should be the first move.

But, after that, they need to go sign pitcher Justin Verlander.

The AL Cy Young winner is looking for a massive payday.

But, he will be 40 years old next season.

The Yankees have never been afraid to spend tons of money on players so Verlander should be on their radar.

Having a one-two punch of Gerrit Cole and Verlander will make this team very dangerous.

For a team that needs to get back to the World Series, adding another ace would be the perfect move.
