Now Commenting On:

Hot or Not: The Yankees are 14-11 in their last 25 games. They started the season 5-6.

On the Bases: They are 25-for-30 (83.3%) in steal attempts this season, which is tied for third-best in MLB.

The Bullpen: The Yankees are 8-1 this season when leading after the first inning. Pitchers currently in their bullpen have combined for a 2.04 ERA, with opponents hitting just .196 against them.

The Rotation: Yankees starting pitchers have allowed just 45 walks all season. They have the best strikeout-to-walk ratio for a pitching staff in the big leagues. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, RHP Masahiro Tanaka's 58 strikeouts through his first seven career games is the fifth-highest total in baseball since 1900.

The Lineup: Yankees rookie infielder Yangervis Solarte leads their roster with 20 RBI, marking the second-highest total among all MLB rookies. He leads all qualifying MLB rookies with a .315 batting average and a .394 OBP. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, OF Alfonso Soriano has 22 HR and 64 RBI in 92 games since rejoining the Yankees last July marking the second-most home runs and tied for the sixth-most RBI in the Majors over the stretch.

The Goodbye Tour: Yankees SS Derek Jeter is playing his final season. He is the only player on either team to play in the first regular-season Subway Series interleague match up in 1997.
