Yankees Bullpen

  • Clay Holmes
  • Tommy Kahnle
  • Jonathan Loaisiga
  • Caleb Ferguson
  • Victor González
  • Ian Hamilton
  • Luke Weaver
  • Cody Poteet

This is likely the best of the bunch, and the Yankees will have to see how things progress. Can Clay Holmes maintain consistency? Can Tommy Kahnle be reliable inheriting runners on base? Will Jonathan Loaisiga stay healthy, at all? Will Caleb Ferguson and Victor González seamlessly transition to their new setting after coming over from the Dodgers? Can Ian Hamilton replicate his promising 2023 before it was cut short due to injury? Will Luke Weaver's new cutter help him erase innings like the Yankees envision? Will Cashman forgetting Cody Poteet's name motivate the pitcher?

Yankees Infield

  • Anthony Rizzo (1B)
  • Gleyber Torres (2B)
  • Anthony Volpe (SS)
  • DJ LeMahieu (3B)
  • Austin Wells (C)

Don't think there's much explaining to do here. Austin Wells should probably start over Jose Trevino, who's already dealing with injuries before spring training even started.
