Help is on the way for the lineup, but will it matter?

Despite a surging Giancarlo Stanton and recent improvements from Gleyber Torres, DJ Lemahiue, and Clint Frazier, a large portion of the Yankees lineup is still struggling. The back half of the lineup is a collection of below the Mendoza line batting averages with little to no run production. Giancarlo Stanton can't continue to hit a homerun every game forever (or can he?), so it is important that some other people in the lineup start to step it up. Aaron Judge is beginning to slump a bit, and Gio Urshela is hurting, though he will likely avoid a DL stint. Mike Ford has not done a great job filling in at first base.

Since they have already made their debuts, I will make a separate list on where those players would have ranked (excluding Betances, Severino, Kahnle, Judge, and Sanchez because they all had significant major league time before this season).
