The One Batting Order the New York Yankees Must Use More of

The New York Yankees have played 120 games thus far this season.

Manager Joe Girardi has thrown out 104 different batting lineups to use in those games.

There isn't much Girardi could do about having a more consistent lineup this season, as he has had player after player go on the disabled list.

To put in perspective how much turnover the Yankees lineup has had this season, the most used lineup is an order that has Kevin Youkilis, Travis Hafner and Francisco Cervelli in it.

Those three are done for the season and have been for months now.

However, the Yankees are starting to get healthier and are playing better with a more consistent order.

The ability to put one lineup up everyday will give the players one less thing to worry about on game day.

No longer will they have to guess where or even if they will be in the batting order.

When the Yankees are doing well they are able to balance their lineup with right-handed bats and lefties. 

The following lineup gives the Yankees that balance and is formidable for the rest of the season.

It could only get better as well. Derek Jeter is currently hurt but expected to return sometime next week, and the Yankees have recently signed slugger Mark Reynolds, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports.

For the time being they are left off this list as Jeter's health hasn't been reliable and Reynolds' role is yet to be defined.
