The New York Yankees have already given us a lot to analyze in the season's first couple of weeks.
A rash of injuries in 2013 led to a reconstruction of the roster this offseason by general manager Brian Cashman, and the new faces have (for the most part) been major contributors. How well the team does in 2014 will inevitably rest on the shoulders of Jacoby Ellsbury, Brian McCann, Carlos Beltran, Masahiro Tanaka and others.
Those guys got off to "expected" starts. The team knew what it would be getting from the likes of them. There are several players who were question marks heading into the season, however.
The early games of 2014 have been full of surprises and disappointments for the Yankees. Some guys have stepped up in a big way, while others have let the team down mightily. There's still time to right the ship, but it will be hard for a few players to do so.
