With the first week of 2020 in the books, we inch closer and closer to spring training. The Yankees may have a move or two left in them, but the roster appears close to set. We have a pretty good understanding of who will play and where. That brings us to this week’s FanPost Friday prompt:
Who is the most underrated player on the Yankees?
The Yankees made waves last month by signing Gerrit Cole, one of the best starting pitchers on the planet. They also have a dominant bullpen anchored by one of the best closers of the 2010s. Who, however, is underrated on the team?
Is it Miguel Andujar, who fell by the wayside after injuries and the emergence of Gio Urshela? How about the remarkably consistent Gleyber Torres and DJ LeMahieu? It’s hard to believe, but you could even make the case for one of the big three sluggers in Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, and Gary Sanchez not receiving enough credit.
How will we select which FanPosts to promote to the front page? Some of it will be subjective. If you follow our tips, you should find yourself on the right track. We will also be looking for FanPosts with comments and recommendations. Depending on the number of responses we get, receiving some recs on your post could separate your FanPost from the crowd. Additionally, if your post has a number of comments then it may have sparked some worthwhile discussions. These are just a few things we’ll be looking for when we decide which post(s) to promote on the front page. We are always on the lookout for new talent, and the FanPost section can be a great way to get our attention.
Submit your answer in the FanPost section before Friday (January 10) for your post to be considered.
