In New York it is never too early to over-analyze a player's performance, especially if the player is a new acquisition from this offseason.
Just under two weeks into the regular season, the New York Yankees have played average baseball and sit with a record of 5-5.
However, they have won five of their last seven games and are currently tied for first in the AL East.
The Yankees made a lot of noise this offseason and spent a lot of money on adding winning pieces to their team. Some have gotten off to a slower start than expected, while others have been everything the Yankees could have hoped for. It is early in the season, but it is still worth taking a closer look at what these additions have been up to in pinstripes.
We will focus on the seven key acquisitions picked up via free agency. To determine their final grades, we will evaluate the players' statistics, as well as other contributions to the team's play.
For example, if a hitter is struggling at the plate but has been great in the field defensively, their grade will reflect that.
Without further ado, the grades are up.
