The 2020 New York Yankees season was the 118th season in New York City for the Yankees, and the 120th season overall for the franchise. The Yankees played in Yankee Stadium in the city's northern borough of The Bronx, and were led by Aaron Boone on his third season as team manager.

On March 12, 2020, MLB announced that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks in addition to the remainder of spring training being cancelled.[2] Four days later, it was announced that the start of the season would be pushed back indefinitely due to the recommendation made by the CDC regarding large public events.[3] On June 23, commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players reported to training camps on July 1 in order to resume spring training and prepare for a July 23 Opening Day.[4]

As the second place team in the American League East, the Yankees qualified for the expanded playoffs and swept the Cleveland Indians in the Wild Card Series. However, they lost to the Tampa Bay Rays in the Division Series in five games.




  • December 11 – Gerrit Cole signs with the Yankees for $324 million for over nine years, the richest contract ever given to an MLB pitcher.[5]
  • December 12 – Brett Gardner re-signs with the Yankees after reaching a one-year, $12.5 million deal. The deal breaks down with a $2 million signing bonus and an $8 million salary for this season. The Yankees have a $10 million option for 2021 with a $2.5 million buyout.[6]

Regular season



On September 17th, the Yankees became the first team in MLB history to hit six plus home runs in each of their previous three games. While facing the Toronto Blue Jays in the last game of a three-game series, they hit five home runs in one inning (the fourth), tying an MLB record. This marks just the fourth time in MLB history that a team has hit six or more home runs in three consecutive games, hitting 19 total.[9]

Highlights of the regular season included DJ LeMahieu finishing the season with a major league-leading .364 average. Luke Voit also topped the majors with 22 home runs. They are the first pair of teammates to lead the MLB in batting average and home runs since Hank Aaron (.355) and Eddie Mathews (46 HR) for the 1959 Milwaukee Braves. LeMahieu is the 4th Yankee to lead the majors in hitting and the 9th Yankee to win an AL batting title. LeMahieu is also the second player ever to win a batting title in each league.[10]

Regular season

On August 13, the Yankees were supposed to play against the Chicago White Sox in the first MLB at Field of Dreams game in Dyersville, Iowa. But due to the pandemic and the MLB commissioner implementing the same division match ups (for example AL Central vs. NL Central) to restrict travel for the shortened season, the St. Louis Cardinals took their spot in the game before the Cardinals had their COVID-19 outbreak which pushed back the game to 2021.
