Reporter proposes idea to improve infield defense, and it involves trading Gio Urshela

Empire Sports Media

In recent days, fans and some media circles have been talking about how the New York Yankees need to find a way to improve their infield defense, specifically the shortstop position. It’s true, Gleyber Torres, the starting shortstop, hasn’t been good at the position: this year, he had a -5.0 UZR, a -13.0 UZR/150 and -9 Defensive Runs Saved (DRS.)

DJ LeMahieu, a solid defensive second baseman, is set to enter free agency, and Gio Urshela, someone with a good defensive reputation but divisive statistical profile, is under contract.
