Yankees Defense Is The Best In The ALE
The New York Yankees are currently 4-4, sitting 3rd in the American League East. This team is very similar to the previous years as not many changes occurred in the offseason. Despite the Yankees .500 record they have not given up a lot of runs, in fact the Yankees defense/pitching has given up the fewest runs in the ALE and the second fewest runs in the AL, only being behind the Chicago White Sox (21 Runs Allowed (RA)) at this point. The Yankees have given up 22 runs, while putting up 25 runs offensively to give them a +3 run positive/differential. The biggest factor of the Yankees 4-4 record is poor offense as those 25 runs are last in the ALE and 12th/15 teams in the American League.
