Bader has been dealing with a foot problem since the beginning of the season, even though he has batted in 72 games. According to FanGraphs, 256 with a .673 OPS, 15 steals, and Saved -2 Defensive Runs in center field.

When he’s fully recovered, the Yankees believe he’ll be one of the game’s best defensive center fielders.

Bader grew up a Yankees fan and had his long blonde hair cut off at 8 a.m. Wednesday following team policy. In 2004, He was there when Derek Jeter ran into the stands against Red Sox, and his parents were there when Aaron Boone strike the game-winning home run in Game 7 of the 2003 ALCS.
