• Will The 2016 Yankees Be Really Old?

    Posted by on December 7th, 2013 · Comments (2)

    As of today, assuming no one retires, gets traded, or is released, the Yankees will have the following on their roster in 2016:

    40-year old Alex Rodriguez
    39-year old Carlos Beltran
    36-year old Mark Teixeira
    35-year old CC Sabathia
    32-year old Brian McCann
    32-year old Jacoby Ellsbury

    McCann and Ellsbury really won’t be an issue until closer to 2018. And, maybe A-Rod will be out of baseball in the next year or two? And, I suspect that you could use Beltran as a bench player/DH come 2016 – like the Yankees used Ruben Sierra and Bernie Williams in their last seasons.

    But, the Yankees really need to start breaking in some younger players, right?

      But, Steve, where is Derek Jeter? How could you leave him off the list? As long as he wants to play, Hal will be keen to avoid the PR disaster he imagines will ensue by threatening not to re-sign the icon.

      Where is the 42-year old Hiroki Kuroda?
