The New York Yankees haven’t been playing their best baseball as of late.
After Aaron Judge was forced to leave the game early on Thursday, the offense has been stagnant, being held to just two runs over the last two games.
The Yankees are 15-13 on the season and are barely hanging onto the third American League Wild Card spot.
They’ve lost two consecutive games and six of their last 10.
The offense certainly has been cold as of late.
On Twitter, an MLB analyst noted just how badly the Yankees have been struggling on the offensive side, revealing some telling statistics.

New York is 25th in batting average, 26th in on-base percentage, 22nd in OPS, and 21st in runs scored.
They have also scored three runs or less in 10 of their last 13 games.
Needless to say, the team has struggled to get things going offensively.
To be fair, New York is dealing with several injury issues.
Giancarlo Stanton and Harrison Bader are both out, and the same fate could befall Judge, who has yet to be placed on the injured list but could ultimately wind up joining both Stanton and Bader.
Still, Bader is soon to return and New York still has Anthony Volpe, DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres, Oswaldo Cabrera, and Anthony Rizzo.
Things haven’t been going according to plan despite some of the names in the Yankees lineup.
New York has now lost two of the first three games against the Rangers in their four-game series and will look to avoid a series loss on Sunday afternoon.NEXT: Nestor Cortes Discusses His Favorite Yankees Superstars
