The New York Yankees are going to have one of the best rotations in baseball in 2023.

The Yankees signed free agent pitcher Carlos Rodón to a six-year, $162 million contract, ESPN’s jeff passan reported on Thursday. He joins a rotation that already included Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes and Luis Severino.

Rodón, who spent the first seven years of his career with the Chicago White Sox, had a breakout season in 2021. He went 13-5 with a 2.37 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 185 strikeouts in 132.2 innings in 24 starts on the road. to his first All-Star Selection.

Rodón is expected to replicate that success at the Pinstripes in 2023 and beyond, as the Yankees hope to win their first World Series title in more than a decade.

MLB Twitter is already excited about the Yankees’ signing and “stacked” rotation for 2023:

The Yankees’ starting rotation is packed. I’m lovin ‘it. They told us they were going to make moves this winter and they are. They are not made either.

The @Yankees they’re tired of fucking around and I have a feeling they’re not done yet.

#Yankees get a great turnover boost at a reasonable price. NY is the center of the baseball universe this offseason.

The Yankees have been one of the best teams in baseball for a while now, but they’ve been missing the extra piece to overcome the hurdle and make it to the World Series. Could Rodon be the missing piece of the puzzle?

Only time will tell.
