"Turning over the roster to the kids, though, hasn’t worked. The Yankees have given playing time to eight players 25 and younger this year. They’ve hit .202/.281/.340. Only Jasson Dominguez, in 33 PA before his injury, has even a 90 OPS+. Anthony Volpe has been valuable for his defense and speed, putting up a three-win season; of the other seven, though, five have been sub-replacement-level players. The failure of this generation of Yankees prospects to launch is a big part of the team’s disappointing 2023 season."
