Yankees offense: 2020 Steamer projections

Here's how FanGraphs' Steamer system predicts the Yankees will perform

For those who may be unfamiliar, Steamer is a performance projection system that "uses past performance and aging trends to develop a future projection for players." It is "widely regarded as one of the most accurate predictors in the industry."

Of course, projection systems don't guarantee players will achieve the numbers forecast by such methods, but it's a useful tool nonetheless.

The Yankees are on the shortlist of World Series favorites entering the upcoming season, and if FanGraphs' projections resemble anything close to what fans will see by year's end, the Bombers could once again be one of baseball's most potent offensive threats.

Here's how Steamer sees the Yankees offense playing out in 2020:
