5 Catchers the New York Yankees Should Pursue This Winter

The New York Yankees have plenty of holes to fill this offseason. Fortunately for them, they will have the money to do so.

One of the most glaring holes for the Yankees is their starting catcher position.

It's safe to say that the Yankees did not think the loss of Russell Martin to the Pittsburgh Pirates would be as significant as it ended up being.

Last season, the Yankees were near the bottom in all offensive statistics at the catcher position. They ranked 26th in MLB among catchers in batting with a .213 average. Yankees catchers' eight home runs and 43 runs batted in were the worst in the majors.

It's very possible that Chris Stewart and Francisco Cervelli, who are both arbitration eligible in 2014, don't return to New York.

If the Yankees decide to not spend any money on the position, they could give the reins to Austin Romine, who started to hit better late in the season.

I don't believe Romine is the answer, however, and if the Yankees feel the same, they will have a few options to replace him, and some with longer options than others.
