JR Murphy is our 52nd customer: Remembering the unmemorable Yankees roster

Rich Schultz

JR Murphy is our 52nd customer and now I try to name them all

The Yankees set a new club record of 52 players used in a season when JR Murphy made his major league debut. We all know the team has been hit with plenty of injuries, so it's not surprising, but still, 52 players is a lot of players. They essentially used their entire 40-man roster and then 12 more. That's double the active roster, like two teams, plus two more dudes.

So, who did they use. From memory:

Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter, Robinson Cano, Curtis Granderson, Brett Gardner, Vernon Wells, Alfonso Soriano, Ichiro Suzuki, Lyle Overbay, Mark Reynolds, Mark Teixeira, Chris Stewart, Austin Romine, Francisco Cervelli, Jayson Nix, CC Sabathia, Joba Chamberlain (sigh), David Huff, Phil Hughes (double sigh), Chris Bootcheck, Hiroki Kuroda, David Phelps, Andy Pettitte, Eduardo Nunez, David Adams, Boone Logan, David Robertson, Cesar Cabral, JR Murphy (duh) ... uh ... Reid Brignac, Chris Nelson, Luis Cruz ... counting how many I have left ... Adam Warren, that's a guy, Preston Claiborne, Travis Hafner, Melky Mesa ... oh god, only 36 so far, MARIANO RIVERA, Shawn Kelley, Michael Yo–wait no–Kevin Youkilis, Travis Ishikawa (!), looooooooong pause, Vidal Nuno, Tanya definitely did not just remind me of Cody Eppley's existence, or that Brennan Boesch and Thomas Neal were things, and Zoilo Almonte, Corban Joseph was a guy, so was Brett Marshall, and Alberto Gonzalez, how did I forget Ivan Nova? and Dellin Betances? and Brent Lillibridge? Ben Francisco!

Ok, in truth I got 41 players, everyone up to Vidal Nuno and then Francisco right at the end. Still.

The next challenge is naming everyone in the Yankees minor league system, starting with Greg Bird. Suck it, Sporcle.
