2019 MLB Team Previews – New York Yankees
- Yankees American League East Odds 5/6
- Yankees American League Odds 11/4
- Yankees World Series Odds 6/1
- James Paxton
- DJ LeMahieu
- Adam Ottavino
- Troy Tulowitzki
After a disappointing playoffs for the New York Yankees they were not shy in trying to get players to bring them over the hump.
James Paxton is a really good pitcher and last year he finished with 11 wins and six losses with an ERA of 3.76. The year before that he went 12-5 with an ERA of 2.98.
DJ LeMahieu is also a guy who should be a big threat in the big part of the lineup.
- David Robertson
- Lance Lynn
- Andrew McCutchen
The Yankees didn’t lose a ton this offseason but David Robertson will probably be felt after he was a key part of the pitching staff last year.
Lance Lynn and McCutchen both were mid season pickups and should be replaced.
2019 New York Yankees Predictions: Projected Lineup:
- CF Aaron Hicks (S)
- RF Aaron Judge (R)
- C Gary Sanchez (R)
- LF Giancarlo Stanton (R)
- 3B Miguel Andujar (R)
- 2B DJ LeMahieu (R)
- 1B Greg Bird (L)
- DH Luke Voit (R)
- SS Troy Tulowitzki (R)
The highlight of this lineup is Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton, but top to bottom this is a complete lineup that is going to see a lot of balls go way out of the park.
LeMahieu is a huge pickup that should really sure up the lineup and I also really think that Troy Tulowitzki is going to be a huge part of this lineup.
2019 New York Yankees Predictions: Projected Rotation:
- RHP Luis Severino
- LHP James Paxton
- RHP Masahiro Tanaka
- LHP J.A. Happ
- LHP CC Sabathia
This is a complete lineup and James Paxton only makes it stronger. The only weak link in this lineup might be Sabathia but he is dealing with an injury so it will be interesting to see when he returns.
This is a lineup that is going to be pitching a lot of shutouts this year.
2019 New York Yankees Predictions: Projected Closer:
- LHP Aroldis Chapman
Aroldis Chapman is one of the best closers in the league and there is no reason to believe it will be any different this year.
Last year he appeared in 55 games going 3-0 with an ERA 2.45 and a WHIP of 1.05. He had 32 saves on the season and that should be the goal this year.
2019 New York Yankees Predictions:
Look for a hole on the Yankees? Look hard because it is going to be hard to find one. They have a great pitching staff, and the lineup is really good top to bottom.
In terms of betting, I think there is a good chance they could do a clean sweep of the AL East, the American League, and the World Series.
That being said, I think this is a place that I would stay away from because there just isn’t any value betting on them.
