The Best New York Yankees of 2022

Each season, we award to players rankings according to outstanding performances during the season. Using this system, here’s how the Batters and Pitchers of the New York Yankees placed:


  1. 99. Aaron Judge
  2. 39. Jose Trevino
  3. 25. Gleyber Torres
  4. 26. DJ LeMahieu
  5. 27. Giancarlo Stanton
  6. 24. Matt Carpenter
  7. 48. Anthony Rizzo
  8. 22. Harrison Bader


  1. 65. Nestor Cortes
  2. 45. Gerrit Cole
  3. 56. Lou Trivino
  4. 35. Clay Holmes
  5. 97. Ron Marinaccio
  6. 40. Luis Severino
  7. 34. Michael King
  8. 43. Jonathan Loaisiga

In the list of the Top 12 players on (compiled by WAR alone), they rank Isiah Kiner Falefa, Josh Donaldson and Oswaldo Cabrera who didn’t make our 16. From our list, Giancarlo Stanton, Harrison Bader (they don’t include the post-season in their rankings), Lou Trivino, Clay Holmes, Ron Marinaccio, Luis Severino and Jonathan Loaisiga don’t make their list. This is partially because of them including far more batters than pitchers, whilst our system includes the same amount of each. As well as our visual assessment of a players contribution to a game, we use primarily the good old fashioned standard statistics (batting average, home runs, RBIs, ERA, Wins and losses, saves), rather than a system of sabermetrics.
