According to BP's fielding statistic Runs Above Average, Lawton was 6 runs RAA last year and is 0 runs RAA so far this season.
He is an average defender, but that will be an upgrade for the yankees.
One that that is worrisome is how bad he was in Chicago. It is a small sample size, and no one seems to be doing that great in chicago right now.
101 G With Pitt: .273/380/.433/.813
19 G With Chi: .244/.289/.308/.597
I do like this lineup quite a bit though.
