Projecting The Yankees Opening Day 25 Man Roster

Ah! It is that time! Spring is in the air and Yankee baseball is right around the corner. Spring Training has been entertaining as Yankee fans everywhere have been able to watch the next generation of Yankees get some work. 

With spring training almost over, we have prepared our projected 25 man roster for opening day. 

Position Players:

1. Greg Bird

2. Starlin Castro

3. Chase Headley

4. Gary Sanchez 

5. Brett Gardner

6. Jacoby Ellsbury

7. Matt Holliday

8. Chris Carter

9. Aaron Hicks

10. Aaron Judge

11. Austin Romine

12. Ronald Torreyes

13. Robert Refsnyder


  1. Masahiro Tanaka
  2. Michael Pineda
  3. C.C. Sabathia 
  4. Chad Green
  5. Jordan Montgomery


  1. Aroldis Chapman
  2. Dellin Betances
  3. Tyler Clippard
  4. Adam Warren
  5. Luis Severino
  6. Tommy Layne
  7. Ernesto Fireri

The Yankees would be wise to consider bringing up Tyler Wade to hold Didi’s position until he is back. Tyler Wade is more versatile, and would help the Yankees with their depth. He has made his case to make the team in camp; however, making this move would almost require the Yankees to get rid of Torreyes. If the Yankees deem him as enough of an upgrade he could make the team straight out of camp, but my gut feeling tells me that the Yankees will want to see him develop in AAA.

The Yankees would have to make two corresponding roster moves if this is indeed the roster they went with. The Yankees could decide to go with Ben Heller instead of the veteran Ernesto Fireri. Either way both have pitched well in camp and it should be interesting to see how the Yankees fill their final few roster spots.
