Juan Soto and Marcus Stroman once had some beef, but the two are teammates on the New York Yankees now. Soto seems ready to put aside any past issues they had and unite in pursuit of a World Series.

On Thursday, the Yankees agreed to a deal with Stroman. MLB Network’s Instagram account posted about the news, and Soto’s Instagram account replied with a comment.

“We shuffle together now,” the comment said.

The great comment goes back to what transpired between the men in June 2023.

While pitching for the Chicago Cubs, Stroman trolled Soto after striking out the then-San Diego Padres outfielder. Stroman mocked Soto’s shuffle (video here).

Now the two can shuffle together.

The addition of Stroman may not make up for the Yankees missing out on Japanese pitcher Yoshinobu Yamamoto, but it gives them a former 2-time All-Star. The addition of Soto gives the Yankees a productive bat, which is something they were short on last season.
