JUST IN:Yankees outfielder has two words to describe the 2024 team…

The New York Yankees are off to a hot start in 2024. They began the season with a four-game sweep of the Houston Astros.

They followed that up with a series win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. While still very early, the Yankees, 6-1, sit atop the American League East. Outfielder Alex Verdugo spoke glowingly in his description of the 2024 Yankees.

“We’re dangerous,’’ said Verdugo when describing the team, according to USA TODAY’s Bob Nightengale.

The Yankees missed the postseason in 2023, going 82-80. The 2024 team thinks “nothing can stop them from playing in October, avoiding consecutive non-playoff years for only the second time in the wild-card era,” wrote Nightengale.The New York Yankees, as is the case every year, entered the season with high expectations. However, before the season even began news broke that ace Gerrit Cole would miss significant time with an elbow injury.

With Cole out, the rotation is led by Nester Cortes, Carlos Rodón and Marcus Stroman.We know he’s the best pitcher in baseball. So, we know what we have coming back when he’s healthy,” Stroman said, according to Nightengale. “So, if we can hold the court for the next two months, and give our team quality starts when he gets back, it’s going to be a massive boost. It’s adding motivation and everyone’s going to feel even more confident.’’
