Although officially Yankees I don’t have your ticket yet. post-seasonit is almost unlikely that the team led by Aaron Boone will suffer the worst debacle in its history during the next 19 games that will remain in the regular role.
New York (87-56) is the leader of the East Division of the American League and it seems unlikely that any of his direct rivals will take away his position of honor, as the Blue Jays (81-62) and Rays (79-63) are 6 and 7.5 respectively, until this Thursday (15 September).
Following the logic that the Bronx Bombers will advance to playoffsit could be the right time to analyze the possible players who would be part of it Boone’s initial lineupin case all of the following are free of injury:
Here’s what the Yankees formation would look like in the 2022 playoff round:
- DJ Le Maheu, 2B
- Aaron judge, RF
- Antonio Rizzo, 1B
- Giancarlo Stanton, LF
- Gleyber Torres, DH
- Josh Donaldson, 3B
- Harrison Bader, CF
- Isiah Kiner-Falefa, SS
- José Trevino, C.
In the case of center winger Harrison Bader, it will be very important to see how he returns to the Major Leagues after an injury that has kept him out of the game for almost 2.5 months. Following Aaron Hicks’ absence from the game, the New York team boss is likely to consider him for the starter job and then send Judge back to his natural right-court position.
Bader plays in the Double-A Yankees and is expected to finally be called up to the big roster in the next few days following his swap from the St. Louis Cardinals, who got left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery in exchange.
