Wrapping Up June

The Yankees have finished June and now let's check totals from that month.

Time for some statistical fun!

Hitting
The Yankees came in with the 17th best team average (.253) behind both the Red Sox (.260) and Rays (.284) who lead the MLB. As for long-balls the Yankees finished 8th best in the league in home runs totaling up to 33 much less than last month (42) due to the many away games. Scoring 140, 4th in the league, and driving in 140, 4th in the league. Yankees team OBP is 2nd in the Majors coming in
at .354 which is similar to last month. Their slugging % is 5th best in the game, .433. A slightly lower BABIP (.269).

Since the Yankees started the month poorly but ended with a 7 game winning streak. So they earned some pretty average numbers. Hopefully in the next month they will keep the streak going.

Season Totals: Avg: 272 (4th), HRs: 116 (2nd), RBIs: 404 (2nd), OBP: 355 (2nd)

Pitching
The Yankees clocked 15 wins this month (8th) and 11 losses (7th). Coming in at 10th the Yankees ERA 3.55. The K were sweet this month the Yanks came in 2nd (215). Giving up an insane 26 HR (13th)
Starting Pitching had a 4.07 ERA (16th)

Relief Pitching had a 2.63 ERA (6th).

Season Totals: W-L: 16-11, ERA: 4.24 (21), K's: 227 (4th)

Fielding
The Yankees team UZR is -6.7

Wrapping Up May

The Yankees have finished May and now let's check totals from that month.

Time for some statistical fun!

Hitting
The Yankees came in with the 3rd best team average (.281) passing both the Red Sox (.271), Jays (.279) and Rays (.279). As for long-balls the Yankees finished best in the league in home runs totaling up to 42. Thank you Jet-Stream. Scoring 151, 4th in the league, and driving in 148, 3rd in the league. Yankees team OBP is 7th in the league coming in
at .350 which is similar to last month. Their slugging % is best in the game, .490. The same mid-range BABIP as last month is good as well (.300).

Looks like the Yankees are putting on the same amount of people as last month but now they are able to get them in. With the Teixeira and A-Rod combo working the Yankees drove in and hit out a lot more.

Pitching
The Yankees clocked 17 wins this month (4th) and 10 losses (4th). Coming in at 15th the Yankees ERA is a shinny 4.24. The K were good this month the Yanks came in 7th (202). Giving up an insane 42 HR, New Stadium has its downside.
Starting Pitching had a 4.32 ERA (14th)

Relief Pitching had a 4.10 ERA. Giving up a league leading 19 home-runs, they pitched 85.2 innings.

Fielding
The Yankees team UZR is .02.

Here are the current standings.

Wrapping Up April

The Yankees have finished April and now let's check totals from that month.
Time for some statistical fun!

Hitting
The Yankees finished with the 7th highest team average (.277) behind both the Red Sox (.284) and Blue Jays (.290). The home runs have been flying, many say due to the New Stadium. Regardless, the Yankees finished 2nd in the league in home runs totaling up to 32. Scoring 123 is not too shabby (5th in the league) and driving in 112 isn't too bad either (6th in the league). Yankees team OBP is 6th best coming in at .359. Their slugging % is 3rd best in the game, .470. A mid-range BABIP is good as well (.302). 174 runners left on base in April, ouch.

With a slumping Mark Teixieria and an injured Alex Rodriguez these numbers are bound to improve once both of them are back to themselves.

Pitching
The Yankees total pitching stats are not as shinny as the hitting ones. Coming in 2nd to last the Yankees ERA is a shinny 5.88 beating out the O's by .01. The K totally were mid-range coming in at 148. Giving up 27 HRs does not help much (tied for 4th highest).

Starting Pitching had a 5.43 ERA

Relief Pitching had a 6.65 ERA. Giving up the 15 home-runs, the most in baseball. Pitching 69 innings (8th most)

Fielding
The Yankees team UZR is -5.3.
