Yankees Lineup

The Yankees have released their lineup for today’s game against the Red Sox. Tonight’s game will be played at Fenway Park in Boston, Massachusetts. The game is set to begin at 7:05pm ET. Here is the Yankees lineup for tonight’s game:

Catcher

The catcher for the New York Yankees is Gary Sanchez.

First Baseman

Greg Bird – First Baseman

Born: November 16, 1992 (age 25)

Height: 6 ft 4 in (1.93 m)

Weight: 220 lb (100 kg)

Bats: Left

Throws: Right

Bird was drafted by the Yankees in the 5th round of the 2011 MLB Draft out of Grandview High School in Colorado. He made his professional debut that season with the Gulf Coast Yankees. In 2012, he played for the Charleston RiverDogs and Tampa Yankees. Bird suffered a shoulder injury in 2013 and missed the majority of the season. He returned healthy in 2014, playing for Tampa and the Trenton Thunder.

Second Baseman

Robinson Canó, a.k.a “Sugar”, is a Dominican-American second baseman for the Yankees. Canó was born in San Pedro de Macorís, Dominican Republic, and came up through the Yankees’ ranks, making his MLB debut in 2005. Canó is a six-time MLB All-Star and won the Gold Glove Award in 2010 and 2012. He was also the Silver Slugger Award winner in 2010, 2011, and 2012. In 2013, he was suspended for doping.

Third Baseman

Miguel Andujar is the Yankees’ primary third baseman. Andujar was born in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on March 2, 1995. He signed with the Yankees as an international free agent in 2011. Andujar made his Major League debut with the Yankees on April 2, 2018.

Shortstop

Didi Gregorius injured his shoulder in September and is still working his way back, so Gleyber Torres will likely continue to see time at shortstop.

Torres is one of the Yankees’ best hitters, so they will certainly be fine offensively with him at shortstop. However, he is not as strong defensively as Gregorius, so the Yankees may look to make a move to upgrade at the position if they think they can compete for a World Series title.

Left Fielder

Brett Gardner is currently the Yankees’ starting left fielder. He’s a left-handed hitter and is known for his speed on the bases.

Center Fielder

Aaron Hicks is the current center fielder for the New York Yankees. He bats switch and throws right-handed.

Right Fielder

The current right fielder for the New York Yankees is Giancarlo Stanton.

Designated Hitter

The Yankees lineup for today includes designated hitter Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton is batting fourth in the lineup and will provide some power for the Yankees offense.

Rotation

The Yankees have a great lineup for today’s game against the Red Sox. They have a strong starting rotation with Gerrit Cole, Masahiro Tanaka, and James Paxton. The Yankees also have a great bullpen that can come in and shut the game down.

Ace

The starting pitcher for the New York Yankees is generally referred to as the “ace” of the team. Today, that title belongs to Luis Severino.

Middle of the Rotation

The Yankees’ middle of the order is where their true power hitters dwell. These are the guys that teams fear coming to the plate with the game on the line. They have the ability to change the game with one swing of the bat, and they often come through in the clutch. The Yankees are fortunate to have several players who fit this bill, and they often rotate them in and out of the lineup to keep opposing pitchers guessing.

Today, the Yankees have a left-handed pitcher on the mound, so they will likely be starting several right-handed hitters in the middle of their order. This includes sluggers like Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez. These are some of the most feared hitters in all of baseball, and they have a tendency to do damage against left-handed pitching. The Yankees will also likely have second baseman Gleyber Torres hitting in the middle of their order today. He is one of their most promising young players and has already shown that he can handle big-time pitching.

Backend of the Rotation

The backend of the rotation consists of the starting pitcher who throws fourth in the rotation order and the fifth starter. The fourth starter is often referred to as the “swingman”, because he is used as both a starter and a reliever. The fifth starter is used only when needed, due to an off-day or an injury to another member of the rotation.

Swingman

A swingman is a player who can play both pitcher and position player. He is also referred to as a utility player.

Bullpen

The Yankees have a strong bullpen this season, with Aroldis Chapman leading the way. Chapman is one of the best closers in baseball, and he’s backed up by Dellin Betances, Tyler Clippard, and Chasen Shreve. The Yankees also have Adam Warren and Luis Severino available out of the bullpen.
