Baseball Reference Predicts Yankees to End Season in Last Place

The Yankees are projected to have a 77.01 percent chance of making the playoffs, according to BetRivers Sportsbook, which is significantly higher than Baseball Reference’s projection of only a 2.7 percent chance. However, it’s important to note that Baseball Reference uses its Simple Rating System to calculate run differential and strength of schedule from the previous year’s prior 100 games, without taking into account injuries or players.

Despite these projections, the Yankees have made significant offseason acquisitions, including Juan Soto, which should greatly improve their offense. Additionally, if Aaron Judge can stay healthy and play a full season, the Yankees have a chance to turn things around from their disappointing 2023 season.

Fangraphs predicts the Yankees will win 88 games in 2024 which is fourth most in all of baseball while BetRivers Sportsbook gives them an even more bullish projection with 91.5 games win record and third best odds to win most games in baseball at +650 . Despite this optimism from Fangraphs and BetRivers Sportsbook , Baseball Reference’s projections remain pessimistic about the Yankees’ playoff chances in 2024.
