With the Yankees beginning the 2019 season on such a successful note, what are the keys to success for the Bronx Bombers?
At this point in the year, we did not expect players such as Clint Frazier, Domingo German, Cameron Maybin, and Gio Urshela to make a significant on this ball club. However, due to unexpected injuries to the Yankees stars, manager Aaron Boone and the Yankees had to make due. There are so many factors to the Yankees success, even involving some luck; however, what are the most crucial parts been to the Yankees success?
Well for starters, the Yankees analytical department and Brian Cashman have done an outstanding job finding diamonds in the rough through trades, free agent signings, and in there own minor league system. Players like Clint Frazier and Domingo German have spent several years dwelling in the minors, not given a chance, until this year.
Another vital part to the Yankees success this season has been Aaron Boone. Boone has done a spectacular job managing the bullpen, despite all these injuries. Boone has also kept the clubhouse light headed and upbeat throughout this terribly unlucky stretch.
As previously stated, there have been several players that have pushed the Yankees through this stretch of many injuries. Players like, Clint Frazier, Gio Urshela, and Luke Voit. Clint Frazier has provided power and energy to the team with his lightning style play. Luke Voit provides a gap to gap hitting with power as his energetic and fun play style propels the Yankees to several wins.
Finally, Gio Urshela has had the “clutch gene” as he has saved the Yankees in several instances with his singles and doubles hitting style. The Yankees would not be in the position they would be in now, without the help of those factors.
