Gittens has some of the best raw power in the Yankees’ organization, and a decent eye to go with it. He can push the counts pretty well at times, and the next at-bat hit a ball where only a select few can. With most sluggers, strikeouts are an issue for him, but he fights counts more than what his walk numbers show, and it’s something he progressed throughout the season.

As for his fielding, he needs to cut down the errors, which he did through the last months of the season. His size can also be deceiving as he made some great glove plays last season, which didn’t necessarily look pretty, but he got them out.
