Presenting the 2018 Yankees Roster Report Cards

New, comments

We’re keeping track of the 2018 Yankees Rosert Report Cards here.

With the 2018 season in the books for the Yankees, it’s time to look back and review the team’s strengths and weaknesses. Having already covered several game-specific highlights and low points, we come to a time-honored Pinstripe Alley tradition. The PSA staff is pleased to present the 2018 Yankees Roster Report Cards, our sixth installment in the yearly series.

In terms of grading, we heard you loud and clear in 2016 when you asked for consistency across the board. In fact, we removed grades from the equation entirely last year. And while that works to a degree, what’s a report card without a letter grade? So I asked the PSA staff to assign a grade to all 49 players who appeared in a game for the Yankees this season. They used production, consistency, and performance relative to expectation as the grading benchmarks. The final grade was the mean of those individual marks.

This post will serve as the tracker for the report cards, keeping the links to them in an easy-to-access location.
