2016 Yankees Statistical Predictions: The Bench

The New York Yankees have one thing this team has lacked much of in a long, long time, a suitable bench and a major league backup at every single position. The Yankees have not only built a team around depth and versatility but they also have a strong bench that could get an absolute ton of playing time in 2016. Think about it this way, this team is heavily reliant on the offense of Brian McCann, Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira much like in 2015 but this time around Rodriguez won't have to play over 150 games. This time around the Yankees can plug in suitable backups without missing much of a step thanks to a strong bench, but just how strong will the bench be?

Aaron Hicks
70 games, .263 average, 13 HR, 40 RBI

Dustin Ackley
91 games, .255 average, 12 HR, 39 RBI

Gary Sanchez
82 games, .271 average, 19 HR, 66 RBI

Robert Refsnyder
54 games, .288 average, 7 HR, 31 RBI

Greg Bird
50 games, .266 average, 15 HR, 41 RBI
