Top 10 Second Basemen In New York Yankees History

6. Alfonso Soriano (1999-2003, 2013-2014)

Alfonso Soriano started his extremely effective career in the Bronx and ended it there is well, with stops in Texas, Washington, and Chicago in between.

He was as good of an offensive second baseman as you could possibly find early in his career. From 2001 to 2003, he jacked 95 home runs, drove in 266 runs, collected 561 hits, scored 319 runs, and swiped 119 bases. He was a focal point of two world series appearances, and would have been a hero in 2001 if Mariano Rivera had held onto Game 7.

His eighth inning go-ahead solo shot off Curt Schilling would have been the difference in a World Series win. Soriano was dealt to Texas in the Alex Rodriguez deal prior to 2004.

He was moved to the left field later in his career and found himself back with the Yanks in 2013 when his late season surge of 50 RBIs in 58 games upon reacquisition nearly lifted the team into the playoffs.
