My 26-Man Opening Day Roster Prediction

By Derek McAdam

The 2021 season is less than a week away with the Yankees opening up on April 1 at home against Toronto. Spring Training is nearing its end with Aaron Boone and Co. finalizing their roster.

There are several players whose spots are in jeopardy, with some due to the tremendous depth that Brian Cashman has put in place. Others are not having the Spring they want to have and may find themselves in Scranton to begin the season.

Some names may not be on this list since they may begin the season on the I.L. The list is strictly just for Opening Day and may change at any time. Here are the 26 players I believe will be on the roster on April 1.

Pitchers (13)

Luis Cessa

Aroldis Chapman

Gerrit Cole

Domingo German

Chad Green

Corey Kluber

Jonathan Loaisiga

Tyler Lyons

Michael King

Jordan Montgomery

Outfielders (5)
