Player Outlook
Seen as a long shot to break camp entering spring training, Anthony Volpe won the starting job at shortstop for the Yankees with his performance in the Grapefruit League and went on total 601 plate appearances as a rookie. At age 21/22, he hit 21 homers and stole 24 bases, but his batting line settled at just .209/.283/.383. He totaled a meager 122 runs-plus-RBI while stuck primarily in the bottom third of the batting order, though he made 28 starts out of the leadoff spot. Volpe makes for an interesting case study entering 2024 because everything under the hood looks bad, but further development should be expected for the former top prospect. It's possible his crash course last season accelerates that development and Volpe quickly becomes the star player some evaluators expected, but right now he's looking like a playing-time-dependent accumulator. The Yankees stuck by him all year despite some low lows, and a long leash should be expected again in 2024.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Swipes two bags in win

    Volpe went 1-for-5 with a run and two stolen bases Friday in an 8-1 victory versus the Red Sox. Volpe made the most of his fifth-inning single, as he proceeded to steal both second and third base before coming home on an Alex Verdugo double. The second-year shortstop is up to 15 thefts (on 18 attempts) this season, tied for 13th in the league. Volpe's power is down in comparison to his rookie campaign, but he's reduced his strikeout rate from 27.8 percent to 21.3 percent, which has helped produce a much-improved .271/.329/.414 slash line.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Swipes 13th bag

    Volpe went 2-for-5 with a run and a stolen base Wednesday against Kansas City in an 11-5 victory. Volpe led off the game with a single and then stole second base before later coming around to score. The theft was his 13th of the campaign, pushing him past the halfway point as he seeks to surpass last season's total of 24 steals. Volpe has reached base at a much higher clip this season -- he's currently posting a .335 OBP compared to last year's .283 mark.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Tallies three hits in victory

    Volpe went 3-for-5 with a triple and two runs against Minnesota in a 9-5 win Wednesday. Volpe was responsible for one-third of the Yankees' nine hits in the victory, and he scored twice from atop the team's lineup. It was the fifth time this season the second-year shortstop has collected three or more hits in a game. Volpe had a 21-game hitting streak snapped May 30, but he's picked things right up since then, building a five-game hitting streak during which he's batted .364 (8-for-22).

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Hitting streak reaches 19

    Volpe went 1-for-3 with a walk, a steal and a run scored in Sunday's loss to the Padres. Volpe extended his hitting streak to 19 games with a single in the sixth inning. He would then steal second and come around to score off a Juan Soto double to open up the scoring and force Joe Musgrove out of the game. His hit streak is the longest by a Yankee since Derek Jeter in 2012. Volpe is currently tied for sixth in the American League with 61 hits and tied for fifth with 11 steals. The 23-year-old has been thriving in the leadoff spot for the majority of the season and is now slashing .282/.355/.435 with 18 extra-base hits, 23 RBI, 36 runs and a 22:52 BB:K in 244 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Reaches double-digit steals

    Volpe went 2-for-5 with a double, a run and a stolen base against the Mariners in Thursday's 5-0 victory. Volpe led off the seventh inning with a double, stole third base and subsequently scored on a Juan Soto single. It was the 10th theft in 12 tries for Volpe, who has now reached double-digit steals in each of his first two MLB campaigns. The shortstop is on pace to exceed last year's numbers in most categories except power -- he has six homers through 51 contests after going deep 21 times in 159 games last season -- and his .278/.349/.429 slash line highlights his substantial growth at the plate.

    Volpe went 2-for-5 with a solo home run during Thursday's 5-0 win over the Twins. Volpe extended his hit streak to nine games with a first-inning solo home run off Joe Ryan. During that stretch, Volpe has gone yard three times with 10 total RBI while logging multiple hits in four contests. After an up-and-down rookie campaign, Volpe owns a .273/.348/.432 slash line with six homers and nine stolen bases through 199 plate appearances in 2024.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Goes deep in loss

    Volpe went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in a loss to the Astros on Thursday. Volpe accounted for New York's first scores with a two-run blast to right field in the third inning. It was his second homer in his past three contests following a 25-game stretch during which he went deep just once. Volpe is still batting just .200 through eight games in May, but he's held onto the leadoff spot, batting first in the order in all of the Yankees' contests so far this month.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Stays hot with two hits, RBI

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with an RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base Saturday's win over the Guardians in Game 2 of the doubleheader. Volpe drew a leadoff walk to open the contest and stole second before coming around to score New York's first run of the game on an Anthony Rizzo single. He would later add an RBI single of his own in the top of the fourth while also scoring a second time. It marked the fifth multi-hit performance of the season for the young shortstop and the fourth game in which he's scored at least two runs. Furthermore, he's gone four consecutive games without striking out, drawing four walks over that stretch.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Moves up to leadoff spot

    Volpe will start at shortstop and bat leadoff in Wednesday's game against the Marlins. It's the first start this season at leadoff for Volpe, who has spent most of his time in the sixth or seventh spot. The 22-year-old earned a move up in the batting order by slashing .375/.444/.600 with two home runs, three stolen bases and a 5:9 BB:K over his first 11 contests. Gleyber Torres -- who has been the Yankees' leadoff hitter this season -- is batting sixth Wednesday.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Swipes two bags Sunday

    Volpe went 3-for-4 with two stolen bases and scored two runs in Sunday's 8-3 victory versus Toronto. Volpe has been swinging a hot bat to start the season, as he's slashing .424/.486/.606 through 37 plate appearances. The 22-year-old has also swiped three bags in four attempts and has scored nine times while knocking one homer and driving in three runs. Volpe worked to flatten his swing during spring training, and the results so far are promising considering that he hit just .209 as a rookie last year.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Late scratch Sunday

    Volpe was scratched from the lineup for Sunday's game at Houston due to an illness, Meredith Marakovits of YES Network reports. Volpe has hits in each of the first three games of the season and has gone 4-for-10 with a double, a homer, four walks, two RBI and three runs, but he'll sit Sunday due to some type of ailment. Jon Berti will replace him in the lineup and start at third base, pushing Oswaldo Cabrera to shortstop.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Belts first homer of campaign

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Saturday against the Astros in a 5-3 victory. Volpe gave New York some needed breathing room with his solo shot in the eighth inning to put the team ahead by two runs. The long ball was the second-year shortstop's first of the campaign after he belted 21 homers as a rookie last year. Volpe has had at least one hit in each of his first three games this season and has shown improved plate discipline in the small sample size with a 4:3 BB:K through 14 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Sitting Saturday

    Volpe will be on the bench Saturday against the Royals, Gary Phillips of the New York Daily News reports. The off day means Volpe will have at most one more game to improve on his disappointing .207/.283/.383 slash line (84 wRC+). The rookie's 21 homers and 24 steals helped prop up his fantasy value, and his defense at shortstop kept him useful enough to the Yankees even when he wasn't hitting, but the team will be looking for him to take a step forward at the plate in his second major-league season. Oswald Peraza starts at shortstop Saturday.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Out of Tuesday's lineup

    Volpe is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game at Toronto. Volpe started the past 11 games and will take a seat Tuesday after slashing .163/.217/.326 during that span. Oswald Peraza will shift to shortstop while Isiah Kiner-Falefa receives a start at third base.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Reaches three times in win

    Volpe went 1-for-3 with a double, two walks, a stolen base and a run against the Astros in a 5-4 victory Saturday. Volpe was one of two Yankees to reach base thrice in the win, and he scored the team's second run after drawing a walk in the second inning. The rookie shortstop added a double in the third and another walk that was piggybacked by a swipe off third base in the fifth. Volpe's effectiveness on the basepaths has tailed off as the season has progressed -- he went 13-for-13 on theft attempts through his first 41 contests but is just 9-for-14 over 94 games since. However, he's maintained a steady role as New York's starting shortstop and has been one of the AL's top rookies with a .218/.296/.409 slash line, 20 homers, 57 RBI, 54 runs and 22 steals over 504 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Reaches 20-20 mark with big homer

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's extra-inning loss to the Tigers. Volpe recorded both extra-base hits in the contest for New York. His fourth-inning double was negated when he was picked off second base, but he made up for that lapse with a clutch homer in the ninth, slugging a two-out, three-run, game-tying shot off Detroit closer Alex Lange that resulted in the contest going into extra innings. The long ball was Volpe's 20th of the campaign, and he's already recorded 21 thefts, making him the first player in franchise history to put up a 20-20 performance as a rookie. Volpe had also recorded a 20-20 season in each of his previous two years in the minors.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Swats homer Sunday

    Volpe went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to Miami. Volpe provided a boost with a two-run shot in the fourth inning, though New York's bullpen imploded late in the Marlins' win. The long ball was the rookie shortstop's second in his past three contests following a 24-game stretch during which he went deep just once. Volpe is up to 16 homers on the campaign to go along with 46 RBI, 47 runs, 20 steals and a .211/.291/.383 slash line over 437 plate appearances.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Goes deep Friday

    Volpe went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run and a pair of walks in a 9-4 win over the Marlins on Friday. Volpe put New York on the board with his three-run blast in the second inning. The long ball was just his second in 25 games since the All-Star break, a stretch during which he has slashed .197/.319/.316 with 11 RBI and eight runs. Volpe does have four steals over that stretch to boost his fantasy value, but he's been a batting-average drain with a .212 mark on the campaign. However, he's been able to maintain an everyday role at shortstop for the Yankees and is one of 10 major-leaguers with at least 15 homers and 20 thefts so far this season.

  • Yankees' Anthony Volpe: Continues hot stretch

    Volpe went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and an additional run in a loss to Baltimore on Wednesday. Volpe brought New York to within a run with his solo shot to right field in the eighth inning. It was the rookie shortstop's second homer in his past three contests following a 23-game stretch during which he went deep just once. Volpe was batting below the Mendoza Line at .193 as recently as June 24, but he's bumped his season average up to a more digestible .223 on the strength of a 10-game stretch during which he's slashing .432/.447/.703.

    Volpe went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and an additional run scored in a 6-3 win over Baltimore on Monday. The Yankees trailed 3-0 when Volpe kicked off a comeback with a solo shot in the fifth inning. The rookie shortstop also notched an infield single in the seventh to give him six multi-hit performances over his past seven games. Volpe has put together an eight-game hitting streak overall and is batting .500 (15-for-30) over that span.
