Home NYC Teams New York Yankees

Early offensive stat projections for the 2017 New York Yankees

Didi Gregorius

  • PA: 586
  • AVG: .262
  • HR: 15
  • OBP: .308
  • SLG%: .404
  • RBI: 63

Didi Gregorius had a career year in 2016, his second year in the Bronx. 

The shortstop climbed to career-highs in home runs (20), hits (155), RBIs (70) and doubles (32) while leading the team with 54 extra-base hits.

He also became just the third shortstop Yankees’ history to hit at least 20 HR and bat over .275. The only other two other two were Tom Tresh in 1962 and Derek Jeter in 1999, 2001 and 2004.

Despite having room to grow at just 26-years old, ZiPS is being a little ungracious as they’re calling for a decline in every category with the exception of on-base percentage — which still needs to get a little higher.

So, while Didi is working to replicate his career year, it’s being projected that we’ll see a repeat of his first season in New York with just a tad more pop.
