#Yankees are expected to be out the shortstop sweepstakes. The belief is that 20-year-old SS Anthony Volpe, who is currently in the Minor Leagues, would be the Yanks future at shortstop. Talks for short-term have included Andrelton Simmons or a reunion with Didi Gregorious. #NYY
Snippet of our Podcast with @elijfishman @BThomps81 asks about the Yankees top prospect Anthony Volpe and his timetable to make it to MLB. Full video here https://t.co/d2AfW76m17 @GT_MLB @Grunttalksmlb https://t.co/KCiXAwRQr1
@CaptainRougie They have to studs SS ready to take over. Oswaldo Perez..could be ready by June, at worst 2023, and Oswaldo Cabrera, who runs and has a better glove than Oswaldo. However, the jewel is Anthony Volpe.
@Yankees I understand fully the potential of Anthony Volpe, but to think that we would potentially pass on Correa/Seager and even Semien is obscene to me. Let’s not short change ourselves please. Seager/Correa are capable of playing 3rd when Volpe comes up. I love Gio, but cmon
It’s rather remarkable how many Yankees fans totally buy into the idea that Anthony Volpe and/or Oswald Peraza will simply come up in 2023 and be good, let alone great.
Are you at all familar with Gary Sanchez, Greg Bird, Clint Frazier, Miguel Andujar, and now Gleyber Torres?
News: #Yankees get their man and acquire star shortstop Nick Ahmed from the #Diamondbacks for Anthony Volpe and Jasson Dominguez. Yankees were said to be out on high end free agent shortstops, but they acquire one of the best in Ahmed. @MLBNetwork
Per @BobKlap, the Yankees’ hierarchy still hasn’t decided how address shortstop,whether to go for Top Tier Correa and/or Seager, Next tier Marcus Semien or Trevor Story, or find a short-term answer like Andrelton Simmons until prospects Anthony Volpe or Oswald Peraza are ready. https://t.co/ZgwBcaN4Lp
Per @Joelsherman1, The #Yankees believe top prospects Oswald Peraza and Anthony Volpe, are close to the majors and don’t want to sign a big money shortstop and block the position from talented, inexpensive possibilities. https://t.co/70WXBBiXTb
BREAKING: The New York Yankees are finalizing a deal with the Washington Nationals to aquire Star RF Juan Soto for 7 prospects and Joey Gallo, sources tell ESPN. Anthony Volpe, and 3 other top 10 prospects are included in the deal
@jeffries_ml @nyporchsport The Yankees have a SS waiting in the wings in Triple A named Oswald Peraza and another in Single A ball named Anthony Volpe. I would say Volpe is the future SS over Peraza. Peraza though I can see play 3B. Or Vice versa. They’ve been putting Volpe at 2B and 3B lately.
Yankees front office loves Anthony Volpe so much? Great. Make him the starting goddamned shortstop on Opening Day, then.
2024 is great -- there are seasons in 2022 and 2023, too. And Gerrit Cole's prime is now.
Volpe looks promising, But The Yankees betting on him over Corey Seager and Carlos Correa? LMAO Look at this free agent class, pathetic if Yanks ain't going big. At least you can move one of them to 3rd. Same ol nonsense, not a diss to Anthony Volpe. But my Goodness
The Yankees *love* Anthony Volpe long term, but he's not quite ready. People might not like this, but "next Jeter" is the constant refrain so not spending makes perfect sense. They just have to be right. https://t.co/Wke0q8qAUS
With rising shortstop prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza being groomed to eventually take over the position, the Yankees are expected to turn their attention elsewhere. @mroberson22 https://t.co/sHZPMpLlC1
Today in #PARSclips, we have @mtburrows of the @Pirates/@GSOHoppers. Burrows was impressive, pitching in a hitter's environment in '21. Clips from his last start vs A+ @Yankees. 1st AB of the game, Anthony Volpe... every pitch:
1st, 96mph chin music. Whatta way to start 😎 https://t.co/JFoWfSBCYo
@EmSheDoesIt @YanksBar Anthony Volpe was the Yankees # 1 pick in 2019 plays shortstop too , if he’s the next Jeter ! And he could be ? Why would you sign Correa ?and he’s gonna want 10 years ! Go with the young guys spend the $ on pitching 👍
I’d obviously be ecstatic if the Yankees got Correa, but given the fact that Anthony Volpe is supposed to be the real deal, I think the move is sign Seager and then move him to 3rd Base when Volpe is ready
Jasson Dominguez and Anthony Volpe are the only guys in the Yankees system who should be considered untouchable. I’d put Luis Gil third on the list, but that’s where the discussion begins. The top two guys should not move. https://t.co/2k2yR3QKFL
According to @martinonyc, the #Yankees don’t see signing a major FA shortstop like Carlos Correa, Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, or Javier Baez as a problem when it comes to what to do with top prospects Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza. All 4 FA’s are capable of moving off SS. https://t.co/M2354MSD2R
After a rough recent track record of first-round picks, Yankees GM Brian Cashman described Anthony Volpe's breakthrough season this year was "refreshing."
Plus, who the Yankees comped Volpe to out of the draft.
Anthony Volpe = “He’s fantastic. Very impressive year. Our belief is that he can be a shortstop long term; or we could move him around to 2nd or 3rd. But is he capable of staying at short? Yes. That’s our current assessment.” https://t.co/cnRbHGyH7D
If the Yankees can somehow keep both Anthony Volpe and Jasson Dominguez, this is an absolute dream. Matt Olson is the best all-around first baseman in the league. He’s an elite hitter and an elite defender, he is just starting his prime, and he has two years of arbitration left. https://t.co/tXF44CW1gz
Anthony Volpe, Oswald Perez, and Clark Schmidt might be enough to get it done
Two top 100 prospects, and a solid pitching prospect isn’t the worst haul for a guy like him?
I feel like the Yankees are going after Seager or Correa, so that makes Perez and Volpe expendable maybe? https://t.co/HVvNjf6gyL
I am of the opinion that you spend resources on pitching if you're the Yankees, and you acquire a stop-gap SS or use Urshela there until Anthony Volpe or Ozzie Peraza are ready in 2023.
DJLM, Gleyber Torres and Gio Urshela will likely be better offensively in 2022.
I don’t know if the #Yankees would sign Carlos Correa, but I wouldn’t mind it. Besides Correa is willing to play 3B, which would open the door for stud SS prospect Anthony Volpe to come up a couple of years later. https://t.co/v6IuPl5Sf5
Honestly, I would be hesitant about either for a first baseman…even one at the Olson level.
But, if I must, I am dealing Jasson Dominguez before I am Anthony Volpe. Volpe has a big year under his belt and, if you have doubt, always keep the middle infielder. #Yankees #SquadUp https://t.co/4HKx0u75yh
@TMKSESPN @RealMichaelKay The Yankees hype their players more than any other team, especially their prospects. Stick was the best at evaluating talent. Let's see how Jasson Dominguez and Anthony Volpe turn out.
The New York Yankees are acquiring C Wilson Contreras from the Cubs and 1B Colin Moran, Steven Brault, Chris Stratton, and Sam Howard from the Pirates in exchange for SS Prospect Anthony Volpe, C Donny Sands, and Tj Sikkema will go the Cubs, @fakejohnheyman first.
I agree and I would not be actively looking to deal Anthony Volpe.
That said, this is a historical SS market and the #Yankees must play in it.
2 years from now? If he develops, maybe Volpe has to move to 3B. Maybe the FA signing has to move. Who knows? #SquadUp https://t.co/ZstXWadyHb

@mikescudiero I'm going to go against the grain here and go Marcus Semien. Here's why. First, he's proven he can hit and hit consistently in the AL East. Second, Yankees can do a short contract with him just enough to let Anthony Volpe get more developmental work in.

@ncostanzo24 Good evening. You have to remember that Derek Jeter came to the Yankees at age 20 and was a superstar, so why not consider Anthony Volpe, rookies should play for experience. Think about it.

@jimcallisMLB @MLBPipeline How do you see Anthony Volpe affecting the Yankees SS search? Would any SS signing a long-term deal (like, say, Seager), be signing with the knowledge they’d eventually be moving to 3B?
Listen, if the Yankees do get Corey Seager then he better move his ass to 3rd when we call up Anthony Volpe in 2023. Cause that’s our SS of the future. At this point I’m damn near feeling like they’re gonna get Seager.

IF Yankees go Corey Seager route, he'll be significantly more expensive than Trevor Story. A yr younger, but more durability concerns. Will have to move to 3rd early in contract. Better be certain Anthony Volpe can hold down SS by '23.
$250M for Seager or $100M for Story?
Yankees GM Brian Cashman: 'Shortstop is an area of need' https://t.co/tw3UbY91bs via @yardbarker : If the @Yankees signed a high price shortstop?? What are going to do with Anthony Volpe, Oswald Peraza and Trey Sweeney @AaronBoone #BrianCashman.
@TalkinYanks Anthony Volpe, the ss that played this year when the Yankees had a 13 game winning streak in August after the field of dreams game. Volpe plays big and is good at the plate and on the bases.
@NYsportssouth @MLBPipeline @BryanHoch @Yankees @swbrailriders @HVRenegades @SOMPatriots @TampaTarpons @gonjass7 @Volpe_Anthony Volpe is also still only doing it in high A ball. Volpe won’t see time in the majors next year anyways and that would be 4 years of MiLB. Soto absolutely demolished the minor leagues the second he set foot on the field. 500 PA in 3 years
363/434/609 good for a 1.043 OPS.
"The Yanks will soon need to take their Lamborghini on the open road to see what he can do."

Two of the Yankees' best prospects are shortstops. As the club considers the winter's mega-FA SS class, here's a peek at two talented youngsters, Anthony Volpe and Oswald Peraza. https://t.co/os1izBuBOz via @SNYtv
The Yankees do have 3 young Minor League SS. I do believe that 1 of these 3 SS maybe the answer. Anthony Volpe , Oswald Peraza or Trey Sweeney is the answer. I just don’t like the idea of signing a SS to a long term contract for over 100 million
Yankees lot!! Anthony Volpe Pro Debut auto base (lowest comp found $100), Deivi Garcia Pro Debut blue 92/150 auto (comps between $20 & $125), Josh Smith Pro Debut gold 31/75, plus 4 Yankees base cards (see pictures) $90 for all including shipping BMWT. PayPal or Venmo only. Thx! https://t.co/wCiv8ovTsd
It’s hardly the news that the agents for all of the star-studded shortstop class want to hear, but the Yankees privately insist they won’t be a major player in the shortstop market believing that prized shortstop prospect Anthony Volpe will be ready by 2023, and will be a star
I like Anthony Volpe, kid has been incredibly impressive so far. But he’s playing in high A and we’re the New York fucking Yankees. We’ll make a spot for Volpe once he’s ready, until then get me an elite SS
2021 stats for Anthony Volpe: .294/.423/.604/1.027, 249 TB, 27 HR, 86 RBI, 33 SB, 170 wRC+ in 109 games between Low-A @TampaTarpons & High-A @HVRenegades. Led all #MiLB Qualified PA (not counting DSL) in wRC+, tied for 1st in OPS. #Yankees #SquadUp #POTY https://t.co/V8x4r2KY8U
@GarySanchezRBW2 The #Yankees won't go after a shortstop unless he's cheap & not any good. Analytics team will find someone in the dumpster. The excuse will be they will have Anthony Volpe in a year or two..
I'd rather see Mr Haney from the old Greeen Acres show pitch instead of Home Run Heaney.
@LeviKornfeld @BryanHoch Our biggest need is a SS, our minor league SS Anthony volpe was mlbs #1 hitting prospect this year. Plus we have other guys like dominguez too. And how come I remember you saying you like the Yankees?
Today isn't *all* bad for Yankees fans.
Anthony Volpe was one of the breakout stars of the minors in 2021.
He's our Yankees Minor League Player of the Year.
