We'll see if Swisher can cash in on a good contract year.
No. 25: Andy Pettitte, SP
Pettitte had a very successful 2012 season after not pitching at all in 2011. The veteran southpaw went 5-4 with a 2.87 ERA and an 8.24 K/9. Pettitte's status for the 2013 season in unclear, but GM Brian Cashman is confident he will return (via Erik Boland of Newsday). Pettitte is 40 years old, but he knows how to pitch. If he returns, he should be a good play in all formats.
No. 24: Kelly Johnson, 2B
Johnson doesn't do much for the average, but he still brings value with his power and speed combination. There were only seven second basemen who had 15-plus home runs and 10-plus steals. Johnson was one of those seven. If you can live with the poor average, Johnson will get you double-digit home runs and stolen bases.
No. 23: Delmon Young, OF
Young had a fair 2012 regular season, but he came to life in the postseason. He hit .312 with three home runs and nine RBI. Even if Young goes to an unfriendly hitter stadium, he proved he can play well at a spacious field. He has the potential to hit 20 homers with a .280 average.
No. 22: AJ Pierzynski, C
Pierzynski had a career year in 2012. He hit .278 with 27 home runs, 77 RBI and 68 runs scored. Because of these numbers, he will most likely be overvalued in 2013. Pierzynski will have a regression, but he should still hit around .280 with 15 home runs.
No. 21: Nick Swisher, 1B/OF
Swisher is a very streaky player. These are his batting averages by month in order: .284, .207, .321, .222, .306, .233 and .636. But while his average fluctuates, his power numbers are steady. Over his eight-year career, Swisher averaged 25.88 homers per season. It doesn't look like Swisher will return to the Yanks, and that may cause his stock to take a hit.
