Yankees fans are eagerly awaiting the start of the 2024 MLB seasons and their first chance to watch a new-look roster that made a huge splash by adding Juan Soto.

But it's not always the play of the flashiest additions that will make all the difference for the season. You always need other players to step up across the roster — especially those who may have suffered setbacks in the past.

With that in mind, these four Yankees are ready to exceed fans' expectations in 2024.

1. Jasson Dominguez

First up is Jasson Dominguez.

The trajectory of his career appeared certain as soon as he was called up on September 1, marking his debut with a home run in his first at-bat.

Dominguez quickly gained favor with Yankees fans in the eight games he made it through before needing Tommy John surgery. That short-live tenure was enough to have Yankees fans anxiously awaiting updates on his status. And all signs have been positive in that area. According to Aaron Boone, Jason Dominguez will “be back in the summer for us. I’m confident in that.”

During his brief run, Dominguez hit 4 home runs with a .258 batting average, and .677 slugging percentage. As anticipation mounts for his return and contributions to the team, enthusiasts eagerly await the unfolding of Dominguez's performance in the forthcoming season.
