Rizzo hit 32 home runs for the fourth time in his career – he never hit more – and had 75 RBI in 130 games despite a .224 batting average. The 33-year-old was sidelined between August 31 and September 18 to treat his back with an epidural injection due to back pain and headaches.

Rizzo’s home runs were 40% of the Yankees’ 77 by left-handers, and his RBIs were 37% of 202 by New York lefties.
