With most of MLB’s top free agents eliminated, the offseason is coming to a close.
While there are still moves to be made, the winners and losers of this offseason are becoming clear.
Here’s a look at two teams that are having great offseasons so far.
2. New York Yankees
The New York Yankees entered the offseason with the possibility of losing a couple of their best bats.
They were able to quickly re-sign Anthony Rizzo, an underrated move to keep a strong left-handed bat.
His attention then turned to keeping Aaron Judge.
While it took a lot of effort, the Yankees were able to hang on to the reigning AL MVP and make him a Yankee for life.
Since he is expected to be named team captain, this signing sets the tone for the Yankees as a franchise.
However, the Yankees weren’t done there.
They were able to go out and get pitcher Carlos Rodón, who is coming off a breakout season in 2022.

He posted a 14-8 record with a 2.88 ERA.
Not only this, but the Yankees probably aren’t done.
Yet even if the offseason ended today, the Yankees head into 2023 with pretty much the same roster and the addition of a starting pitcher up front.
1. San Francisco Giants
Even though the San Francisco Giants missed the Judge toss, they more than made up for it.
They signed Mitch Haniger, an underrated outfielder from Seattle looking to have a payback season in 2023.
The team also had one of the biggest surprises this offseason, signing Carlos Correa to a 13-year deal.
Dodger fans hate him enough already.

These two moves alone strengthened the Giants’ lineup, making it one of the best in baseball.
Throw in other add-on moves like signing Sean Manea and Ross Stripling, and the Giants have had a very good offseason.
