Early offensive stat projections for the 2017 New York Yankees

Matt Holliday

  • PA: 329
  • AVG: .244
  • HR: 14
  • OBP: .325
  • SLG%: .447
  • RBI: 52

The former National League batting champ is simply not the player he was.

Matt Holliday has played in just 183 games over the last two years with just 703 plate appearances and his early projection has him making fewer appearances than in 2016 — a year in which the 36-year old fractured his thumb.

So, while Cashman inked his newest designated hitter on a deal that doesn’t hinder the youth movement but could provide some output (20 home runs last season), staying healthy is a major concern.
