Presenting the 2022 Yankees Roster Report Cards

An incredible year for some Yankees was a devastating one for others. How did each player grade out?

Dan Brink

Eight days ago, the Yankees’ 2022 season came to an unceremonious conclusion at the hands of the Astros in a four-game sweep. To say that the ALCS itself was a disappointment would be an understatement, but it was quite the rollercoaster journey to get to that point. A scalding-hot couple months put the Yankees on track to make history, and while a dismal stretch from July to August cooled things off, they ended with 99 wins and an AL East crown.

Who played the best, and who disappointed the most? Over the next month and change, we’ll go through the roster and give each player an overall grade, combining the evaluations of each member of the PSA staff.
