Aaron Boone gets brutally honest on Yankees offense after dropping series vs. Orioles

New York Yankees, Aaron Judge, Aaron Boone

The New York Yankees had quite a series to forget in Baltimore, as they dropped two out of three games to the Orioles.

Over the course of the series, the Yankees were marred by their continual struggles on offense. In the two games that they lost to the Orioles, they combined to hit 3-14 with runners in scoring position, as they had dire difficulties time and time again in taking advantage of golden opportunities to post multi-run innings.

More so, out of the nine Yankees hitters who earned a start in the series finale against the Orioles, only four of them are currently hitting over .220.

From Yankees manager Aaron Boone’s standpoint, as he noted during his post-game press conference, he is confident that his team will soon turn around its woes on offense.

“We got a few guys that are swinging it pretty well and off to pretty good starts,” Boone said. “I’m gonna bet on the track record of a few other guys that are gonna have the kind of seasons that are used to provided health. … I am confident in this offense that we’ll be what we should be.”

Boone did not single out any such players who are off to slow starts, but the likes of Josh Donaldson (.256 OBP) and Gleyber Torres (.229 OBP) sure are in need of a hot streak at the plate at this point in the season.

For now, the Yankees will finish off their first road trip of the season with a three-game series against the Detroit Tigers beginning on Tuesday.
