Three Facts: New York Yankees

New, comments

From here on out we'll run through the divisions. Starting with the ALE.

  • Nick Swisher will bounce back. Despite a career high percentage of line drives hit, Swisher's BABIP was a career low .251. Compared to a career BABIP of .279, he seems like a safe bet to bounce back. Now whether that's in a Yankees uniform or not...
  • And on the other side of the spectrum, there's Xavier Nady. His line drive rate was also a career high, but so was his BABIP. .337 versus .316 career. If the Yankees do decide to move a corner outfielder in a trade, they should focus their efforts on moving Nady, not Swisher.
  • Joba Chamberlain should be in the rotation. Enough said.
