The New York Yankees are the leaders of the East Division of the American League with a 4 game advantage over the Tampa Bay Rays. They have a positive run differential (plus 52), winning 8 of their last 10 games.
However, there are 4 batters who are still in debt despite the good moment of the team. With his contribution, the Bronx Mules would be even more fearsome.

Aaron Hicks is already in trade rumors within the New York Yankees by hitting .230 with a home run, 5 RBIs and showing a .653 OPS. In the last 14 days he’s just showing a .167/.390/.167 offensive line with one RBI. Aaron Boone is already leaving him out of his plans.

Joey Gallo has been one of the Yankees’ biggest disappointments in the 2022 season, posting a .187 average with just 3 home runs and 4 RBIs in 75 at-bats. His OPS is just .611 and he is already one of the pieces the Yankees can trade to strengthen their pitching in the trade market.
Third baseman Josh Donaldson has been the most notable in the New York Yankees at the beginning of the season, barely showing an average of .215 with 2 home runs and 7 RBIs. In the last 14 days he has an offensive line of .258 / .395 / .323 with a pair of doubles and 3 RBI, so he is still working to straighten his numbers for the development of the campaign.
