New York Yankees: Stat Predictions For The 2016 Season


Dellin Betances: The Bronx native has become one of the best relievers in the MLB and should continue his impressive form in 2016. Will likely serve as the set-up man to either Miller or Chapman.

GP: 70, W-L: 7-3, ERA: 1.43, SV: 5

Andrew Miller: Had a dominant first season with the Yankees and despite trade rumors, appears to be staying in New York for 2016. Is also one of the best relievers in the league and should have an even better season with Chapman behind him. Could serve as a closer or late inning reliever depending on the situation.

GP: 67, W-L: 4-3, ERA: 1.85, SV: 15

Aroldis Chapman: The newly acquired Cuban flamethrower is potentially the most dangerous reliever in the MLB. Getting him was a bold move by the Yankees and one that has pleased many fans. Chapman will make late innings at Yankee Stadium very exciting but it remains to be seen whether he will serve a suspension for domestic abuse.

Prediction: Suspended for 50 games

GP: 51, W-L: 2-2, ERA: 1.54, SV: 19

Chasen Shreve: GP: 62, W-L: 5-2, ERA: 2.93

Bryan Mitchell: GP: 50, W-L: 4-5, ERA: 4.27

Ivan Nova– May serve as a starter or could get traded prior to the beginning of the season.

GP: 43, W-L: 7-9, ERA: 4.40

Jacob Lindgren– Should be healthy for 2016. His status with the major league club will likely be dependent on Champman’s potential suspension.

GP: 31, W-L: 3-2, ERA: 3.78
