I doubt the Lopez is vulnerable at this point. He has done well and may end up in rotation on OD 2021.
McKenna is only 23. I think he will get all of next year to show improvement.
Oddly enough I think Alberto belongs on this list. He is doing just what he did last year. Kill lefties and not hit righties. How long will Elias put up with that as he gets more expensive?
It’s interesting to me that the AL East hasn’t seen much yield in this time period. Tampa’s low numbers surprised me. The Yankees’ total WAR is basically one player, Aaron Judge. Again, nobody really knows what 2017-18 yielded yet, and even 2014-16 are probably incomplete in terms of impact players produced.
I don’t disagree with any of those choices, but I think some of them have more value than the guys who would replace them. I don’t think Kline or Sulser gets the axe just yet, and if we DFA Wynns, we need to keep Holaday.
