Player Outlook
Acquired from the rival Red Sox this past December in exchange for three pitchers, Alex Verdugo is joining a Yankees team that will be hungry to bounce back from last year's mediocre 82-80 finish. Maybe a change of scenery will help him individually -- Verdugo always wore the stink of being part of the Mookie Betts trade in Boston -- but there aren't many indicators in his current offensive profile suggesting a fantasy breakthrough is coming. Since posting a career-high .844 OPS during the COVID-shortened 2020 season, the outfielder has registered a mediocre .751 OPS while averaging only 14 home runs for every 162 games played. He finished in the 49th percentile last year in average exit velocity and was just 29th percentile in hard-hit rate. Lacking both projectable power and projectable speed, he'll need his new teammates in the Bronx to bolster his counting-stats production.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Heating up at plate

    Over his past six games, Verdugo is slashing .300/.417/.650 with two homers, four RBI and a 4:0 BB:K. Verdugo went deep against Miami on Tuesday for his first long ball at home as a member of the Yankees. The outfielder started the season batting just 3-for-21 over his first six contests, but he's turned things around significantly since. The lefty batter has started all 12 games for the Yankees so far this season and is batting .385 (5-for-13) against southpaws versus just .143 (4-for-28) against right-handers.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: First homer with Yankees

    Verdugo went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Wednesday's win over Arizona. Verdugo jumped on a hanging four-seamer from Kevin Ginkel in the top of the 10th inning and sent it into the stands in right field, scoring Anthony Volpe to give the Yankees a two-run lead. It marked the left fielder's first home run of the season and also his first in a Yankees uniform. However, even after his heroic effort in Wednesday's win, Verdugo is still batting just .160 on the season with three RBI and three runs scored.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Returns to lineup

    Verdugo (leg) will start in left field and bat seventh in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays. Verdugo was scratched from the lineup Sunday with a left leg contusion after being hit by a pitch Saturday, but he's now ready to resume his preparations for the start of the 2024 campaign. Traded from the Red Sox to the Yankees in the offseason, Verdugo is expected to serve as the primary left fielder for New York. He is 1-for-8 with a double and three strikeouts so far this spring.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Scratched with leg contusion

    Verdugo was scratched from Sunday's Grapefruit League lineup against the Tigers due to a left leg contusion, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. The veteran outfielder was hit by a pitch during Saturday's contest and will take at least one day to recover from the injury. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, and Verdugo should be considered day-to-day until more information is available.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Agrees to terms with Yankees

    Verdugo signed a one-year, $8.7 million contract with the Yankees on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports. Verdugo was dealt to the Yankees earlier in the offseason and is in his final year of arbitration eligibility. He projects to be the team's primary left fielder and should remain a decent source of batting average and runs scored as a part of a strong lineup in New York.

  • Yankees' Alex Verdugo: Dealt to Yankees

    The Red Sox traded Verdugo to the Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for Richard Fitts, Greg Weissert and Nicholas Judice, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. With trade talks stalling between the Yankees and Padres regarding Juan Soto, New York ensures the addition of a capable left-handed outfield bat by acquiring Verdugo. Verdugo slashed .264/.324/.421 with 13 homers and 54 RBI last season across 602 plate appearances. He figures to see regular at-bats versus right-handed pitchers after posting an .806 OPS against them across the last three seasons.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Returns to lineup

    Verdugo (hamstring) is starting in right field and batting leadoff Friday against the Orioles, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Hamstring tightness has kept Verdugo on the bench since he was removed from Sunday's game against Kansas City. Now that he's back in action, he'll look to stay hot at the plate after belting four homers across his last 10 games.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Still sitting Wednesday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Most likely out until Friday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is unlikely to return to the Red Sox's lineup until Friday's game against the Orioles, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports. Verdugo has been ruled out through Tuesday with left hamstring tightness, and while he could return for Wednesday's series finale with the Rays in a best-case scenario, the Red Sox will most likely wait until after Thursday's off day before returning him to the lineup. His expected absence for the series in Tampa should open up right field for Adam Duvall and center field for Wilyer Abreu.

  • Red Sox's Alex Verdugo: Held out of lineup Monday

    Verdugo (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays, Mac Cerullo of the Boston Herald reports. Verdugo was removed from Sunday's game versus the Royals because of left hamstring tightness and wasn't expected to be ready to play a day later, so his absence from the lineup Monday isn't surprising. The good news is that he hasn't yet been placed on the injured list and is considered day-to-day for now. Adam Duvall will cover right field Monday in place of Verdugo.
