The hitting has been light of late for the Bombers. In this year's lineup, the Yankees can't rely on the home run to plate multiple runners at once. They'll need to get better at stringing together hits and succeeding in situational hitting.
Luckily for them, the future at the plate seems pretty bright. The Yankees have multiple prospects in their system who excel with the stick. While they aren't all close to the bigs, it shouldn't be all that long before we see them make an impact for the big club.
There are some quality arms in the system as well. Arms tend to make the jump to the bigs quicker than hitters do, so we could feasibly some of these names in the Bronx within the next year or so.
