The New York Yankees have their work cut out for themselves in 2024. They went 82-80 and failed to reach the postseason for the first time since 2016.

New York has a talented roster with superstars like Aaron Judge, Juan Soto, and Gerrit Cole leading the way. The Yankees need to be proactive with how they build their team in 2024.

It's a long season so you need to craft a roster that's able to weather the eventual injuries that will happen. These are three players who shouldn't make the 40-man roster.

1. Jose Trevino

Catcher Jose Trevino has been in New York since 2022 but he hasn't produced much throughout his tenure. Trevino is a solid defender behind the plate but he lacks the offensive skillset to consistently be productive.

Over his last two years in New York, the 31-year-old struggled tremendously to provide a boost on the offensive end. Across 492 at-bats from 2022-2023, Trevino recorded 16 doubles, 15 home runs, and 58 RBIs.

Last season was a nightmare for Trevino. He had to undergo right-wrist surgery that cut his year short. Prior to the injury, his slash line was .210/.257/.312.

The Yankees can find better options on the trade market if they want to have better offensive talent behind the plate. But Trevino's time in New York should be coming to an end.
