Critics could say the Yankees haven’t always spent their money well in free agency.
That can’t be said so far about the free agents the Yankees brought in this offseason.
Through three weeks worth of games the trio of Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran and Brian McCann have not disappointed.
McCann got off to the slowest start of the three but has come along recently, batting .333 over the past week. Among AL catchers, McCann ranks in the top five in runs, home runs and batting average.
Beltran has provided most of the power for the Yankees this season, leading the team with five home runs and 13 RBI. Beltran also has a team-high .580 slugging percentage.
Ellsbury signed the biggest offseason contract this winter for the Yankees, and all he has done is perform like an MVP candidate. He's batting .337 with eight stolen bases on the season and has been the offensive catalyst no matter where he has batted in the order.
Ellsbury has been beyond impressive at the plate already this season, despite having failed to hit a home run yet.
If this trio continues to play as they are, then the Yankees will have a bright future for this season.
It's very early, but as they sit now the Yankees couldn’t be happier with their new additions.
