AL East Notes: Yankees lineup, Mark Trumbo

The latest news from around the American League East.

MLB: New York Yankees at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Yankees are finding themselves making a drastic shift in the way they build an offense. Their power is coming from the right side of the plate.

Carlos Beltran is gone, and the roles of Brian McCann and Mark Teixeira have been diminished. All of the young kids (Tyler Austin, Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez) that have been promoted are right-handed. And they are seeing the impact of shifts against hitters.

All of it is leading to a massive change in their lineup structure and offensive output.
