Right now, the Yankees are simply worrying about whether or not they're going to have a season to play in 2020. But, with the hiatus, it's worth examining how this roster is set up at the moment, and more specifically, how it could change next season and in the short-term future.
This season, the Yankees are primed to contend for a World Series title, and that was evident when GM Brian Cashman said you know what to the luxury tax threshold and paid Gerrit Cole $324 million over the next nine seasons to be his bonafide ace. That was added to the massive amount remaining on Giancarlo Stanton's contract.
So, as of now, the Yankees are at $239 million, which is well over the $208 million threshold. A World Series would definitely suffice with that kind of spending. But what about spending for the future?
