The New York Yankees will have one of the best rotations in baseball in 2023.

Yankees sign free agent shooter Carlos Rod贸n to six-year, $162 million contract, ESPN Jeff Passan Reported Thursday. He has already participated in a rotation that includes Gerrit Cole, Nestor Cortes and Luis Severino.

Rod贸n, who spent the first seven years of his career with the Chicago White Sox, had a breakout campaign in 2021. All-Star Game selection.

He signed with the San Francisco Giants ahead of the 2022 season and earned his second All-Star Game selection after going 14-8 with a 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 237 hits in 31 starts in 178 innings.

While the Yankees hope to win their first World Series title in more than a decade, Rod贸n is expected to repeat that feat at Pinstripes in 2023 and beyond.

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

The Yankees starting route stacks up like hell. I love it. They told us they’re going to make a move this winter, and they are. They’re not finished either.

@Yankees He’s tired of messing around, and I feel like they’re not finished yet.

#Yankees Get big rotation boost at reasonable price. NY is the center of the baseball universe this off-season. https://t.co/f6wI4DajuA

The Yankees have been one of the best teams in baseball for a while, but they’re missing the extra pieces to get them over the bumps and into the World Series. Could Rod贸n be the missing piece of the puzzle?

Only time will tell.
