The Yankees’ projected 2025 lineup is an interesting blend of youth and experience

New York Yankees, Gleyber Torres

Are curious to see what the New York Yankees’ lineup could look like in 2025? We all are. The Bombers may have spent years without winning the World Series, but the organization has several impact prospects and young players that invite the fan base to dream.

The folks at Baseball America (link to Talkin’ Yankees tweet here), specialized in prospects coverage, made an interesting exercise: trying to project the Yankees’ 2025 lineup and rotation. They are not all prospects: the site assumes that some of today’s stars will stay via contract extensions.

Without further ado, here is the Yankees’ projected 2025 lineup and rotation, by Baseball America:

C – Austin Wells

1B – DJ LeMahieu

2B – Gleyber Torres

3B – Anthony Volpe

SS – Oswald Peraza

LF – Joey Gallo

CF – Jasson Dominguez

RF – Aaron Judge

DH Giancarlo Stanton

The first things we observe is that, in this particular exercise, the Yankees extended Torres, Gallo, and Judge. If that means they are going to rebound in the upcoming years, then it’s definitely something the Yankees can consider. Judge, in particular, needs to be extended past the 2022 season, as he is one of the league’s premier players.

The way MLB finances work indicates that hitting prospects Wells, Volpe, Peraza, and Dominguez need to be established well before 2025 if the Yankees are going to keep Judge, Gallo, Stanton, and Gerrit Cole, although we really don’t know how the new collective bargaining agreement will look like.

The Yankees’ pitching looks good for 2025

Here is what Baseball America thinks about the Yankees’ potential 2025 pitching staff:

SP – Gerrit Cole

SP – Luis Severino

SP – Jordan Montgomery

SP – Luis Gil

SP – Hayden Wesneski

CL – Luis Medina

Again, the exercise assumes the Yankees will extend some of the current players, in this case Severino and Montgomery. If they can get two homegrown starters to be regular contributors and members of the rotation, it would be an extremely desirable outcome. We have already seen what Gil can do on a major league mound if he ever learns to control his stuff, and Wesneski is certainly a talented arm, as is Medina.
