New York Yankees: Stat Predictions For The 2016 Season


LF- Brett Gardner: Started off hot and began to fade as the season continued but overall had a decent 2015. At age 32, and with the addition of Aaron Hicks, Gardner should benefit from more opportunities for rest.

GP: 143, AVG: .270, HR: 12, RBI: 64

CF- Jacoby Ellsbury: Like Gardner, Ellsbury started off hot and had difficulties towards the end of the season mainly due to injury problems. Expect Ellsbury to have a very strong 2016 season as he looks to prove his doubters wrong.

GP: 155, AVG: .275, HR: 15, RBI: 78

RF- Carlos Beltran: The aging star had a productive second year with the Yankees and came up clutch in multiple different games down the stretch. With Hicks now in contention for a starting role, Beltran could see more time at DH and receive well needed rest in the latter part of the season.

GP: 125, AVG: .261, HR: 17, RBI: 60

Fourth Outfielder- Aaron Hicks: Acquired from the Twins for backup catcher JR Murphy, Hicks will look to impress in his first season in New York. The 26 year old will likely start off as a reserve but should see plenty of game time.

GP: 110, AVG: .263, HR: 13, RBI: 47
