There has been much to like over the first several weeks of spring training for the New York Yankees, but there have also been some performances that have been incredibly disappointing.
The point of spring camp is to get started on the right foot for the regular season. Sure, it takes some guys a little while to get back in the swing of things, but even then it's hard to explain some of these slow starts.
Sample sizes are often the first argument made against spring training numbers. To that I say, the numbers indicate a trend. If a player's slump extends long enough, it might be impossible for him to get his numbers back to where they should be.
I don't care how small a three-inning sample size is. If the pitcher had trouble getting outs and allowed 10 hits in those three innings (as a reliever that pitches an inning a game), something just isn't right.
The following five players have, in my opinion, been the most disappointing Yankees in camp.
