New York Yankees reveal 26-player roster for MLB Opening Day 2024

The New York Yankees are preparing for the 2024 Opening Day, facing off against the Houston Astros. However, injuries to key players like Gerrit Cole, DJ LeMahieu and Oswald Peraza have led to some changes in the projected 26-man roster. Manager Aaron Boone will rely on the best players from spring training and a recent acquisition to strengthen the bench depth.

In the starting lineup, LeMahieu will be absent due to a foot injury, with Berti stepping in as the third baseman following a trade from the Miami Marlins. The everyday starters remain largely intact. On the bench, Wells will serve as the backup catcher behind Trevino, with Cabrera ready to play first base and also fill in as an outfielder if needed. Rortvedt was traded to the Tampa Bay Rays, leaving Wells as the lone backup catcher.

The rotation will see Gil as the fifth starter in place of Cole and Cortes taking the mound on Opening Day. Rodon is also set to pitch, with their performance determining Gil’s future on the team. Weaver will begin his season in the bullpen with Gil joining him there.

The Yankees hope that their reshaped roster will lead them to a successful start to their 2024 season.
