Derek Jeter led the league in hits at the age of 38 last season

The New York Yankees are an aging baseball team. On opening day 2013, manager Joe Girardi will send out seven starters who are over the age of 30 and potentially eight, depending on who he names as the team's starting designated hitter. 

As a result, the Yankees will be fighting in a tough AL East division relying on players to out-produce their age and/or ability. In 2012, Derek Jeter led the MLB in hits with 216 at age 38, and Hiroki Kuroda won 16 games and was arguably the best pitcher on the staff at age 37. 

In 2013, with another year passing and multiple holes to fill due to the losses of Nick Swisher to the Indians and Alex Rodriguez to injury, everyone will be asked to do more. These five players specifically will need to overachieve for the Yankees to be successful.
