New York Yankees Grades for Every Player in July
USA TODAY Sports
Hiroki Kuroda is becoming the Yankees' ace.

In an up and down month of July, the New York Yankees have failed to gain any ground in the ultra-competitive American League East.

New York started the month by winning six straight and nine of its first 12 games. However, the offense has stumbled lately, and the Yankees are just 13-12 for the month. In seven games, they have failed to score more than one run, including two shutouts.

As the trade deadline looms, the Yankees have acquired a coveted right-handed hitting outfielder in Alfonso Soriano. Plus, they have activated Derek Jeter and Jayson Nix from the disabled list, and the returns of Curtis Granderson and Alex Rodriguez (if he doesn’t get suspended) are on the horizon. 

Sitting at 55-51, the Yankees are 8.5 games out of the division and 3.5 games out of the wild card with the most important two months ahead. Still, with 56 games remaining, it’s far too early to count the Yankees out, no matter how many hurdles they have to climb.

Some players are heating up, while others have succumbed to the length of a grueling season.
