Infield

Anyone that has an issue with the catching situation needs to go home. Not only did the Yankees find their guy with Gary Sanchez, but they found the correct mix with him and Brian McCann. They received 40 homers and 100 RBIs combined between the two primary guys at the position.

As for the rest of the infield, Didi Gregorius and Starlin Castro were forces up the middle for the entirety of the campaign. Didi had, by far, the best year of his young career while Castro gave the Yankees a glimpse of what he can provide in the Bronx: a free swinger with major pop and a more than capable glove.

Headley greatly improved his subpar 2015 defense and turned in a steady season. Teixeira, across the diamond, disappointed offensively for a vast majority of 2016. However, he turned it around while seeing less time in the final two months of his career.

The Yankees will need to figure out the Tyler Austin/Greg Bird scenario at first base in 2017, but they are pretty much set otherwise. It will be a good problem to have.
