Yankees: 3 Holes New York Must Address at the Deadline
Kathy Willens/Associated Press

With the All-Star break over and done with, the New York Yankees find themselves with a .500 record and in third place in the American League East as the second half of the season gets underway. Somehow, New York is within striking distance of a playoff spot, but it will need to make some changes come the trade deadline if it is to have any hope of being a true contender.

If not for Derek Jeter's farewell tour, this season would have already been one to forget.

After spending an absurd amount of money last offseason, the Yankees have little to show for it. The team's play has been lackluster. The starting rotation has been decimated by injuries. The lineup has performed well below expectations, putting up lamentable numbers. The team is old and in need of some new blood as well, even if such a player does not impact the pennant race.

With the July 31 trade deadline fast approaching, these are areas that the New York Yankees need to improve upon.
