In a season during which all but a handful of Yankees missed time due to injury, it’s amazing that they’ll enter the playoffs with almost all of their best players on the active roster. On paper, they look great. How that translates on the field is another story. They lost nine of their last 17 games, but there’s no question that their starting pitchers can be very good, the bullpen is very deep, and their lineup is filled with guys who can thump. That combination can be quite effective in outlasting a playoff opponent.

Here’s how every member of the Yankees’ 2019 ALDS roster was originally acquired. The team’s full RosterResource Depth Chart and Payroll pages are also available as a resource.
