Projected 2017 Yankees Lineup, Predictions

Projected 2017 Yankees Lineup Breakdown 

 

1 – Brett Gardner

Is he the ideal choice? No but he is the ideal choice with the roster the Yankees currently have. He carried the best OBP of any player on the Yankees last year and has the most speed coupled with base running acumen in order to create runs. He is a step slower but is still a 30 stolen base threat. The biggest reason to put him on top of the order is his ability to make pitchers work. New players excluded, he is the only member of the roster that averaged over four pitches per at bat. He will start the season at the top of the Yankee order.
