The New York Yankees have five players with at least 200 at-bats who have an on base plus slugging percentage of .660 or lower, including free-agent pickups in 2B Brian Roberts, C Brian McCann and OF Carlos Beltran. The other two are SS Derek Jeter and OF Alfonso Soriano.
Fantasy Tip: And yet the Yankees are three games over .500. It just shows you how no one is running away with this division, but the fact is all five of these players carry fantasy risks because of the low OPS numbers.
