State of the Yanks at the “halfway point”

The Yankees trail the Red Sox by three games in the division at the All-Star break, but lead the AL wild card race by 2.5 games.

The Yanks have played 54.3 percent of their games at baseball’s deceiving “halfway point.”

Here is a closer look at the standings:

AL Wild Card:

The Red Sox have led the East at the break for the last five seasons, but have only gone on to win the division twice.

Bottom line: the Yankees overcame a slew of early-season injuries and have put themselves in a strong position to make a run at the postseason (despite getting swept in their last series before the break).

More season review and grades coming during the four-day break.
