Bringing back a NoMaas feature from last season, we examine how each Yankee is tracking defensively, according to UZR/150. UZR/150 measures how many runs above or below average a fielder would be at that position over the course of 150 games


As a team, the Yankees have a +5.0 UZR/150, 4th best in the AL. As usual, the Rays are first with +8.0.

UZR is not a fan of Robinson Cano, as this is the third straight year he comes in as a below-average 2B. He may play second like he’s Skip to My Lou, but UZR remains unimpressed. It is worth noting, however, that Revised Zone Rating (of Hardball Times fame) puts him 4th best in the AL, while leading 2B with 14 plays made outside his zone.

The Jeter defensive renaissance continues, although he’s been dinged a tad on his range.
