Last but certainly not least in our list of Yankees expected to break out is none other than the Bomber's newest snag, Marcus Stroman.

Rumors surrounding Stroman's potential move to the Yankees surfaced as both fans and management recognized the pressing need for strengthened pitching within the team.

Apparently agreeing with the speculation, the Yankees and Stroman finalized a two-year, $37 million deal in mid January.

In his final season with the Cubs, Stroman put up a solid 3.95 ERA over 136.2 innings, and was able to help them finish second in the NL Central Division. That marked his fourth straight year with an ERA below 4.00, and it was his third time in the previous four seasons earning double-digit wins.

Stroman is set to be a key starting pitcher, addressing their rotation needs. His passion for the game and eagerness to excel in New York make him a promising breakout player for the 2024 season.
