2022 All "Yankees" WAR

By James Vlietstra

January 1, 2023

***

In this article, I have two lists. The first are the Yankees prospects who appeared in their first games in 2022.


The second (longer) list is the WAR totals for every player in the Major Leagues who has played in the Yankees system at one point in their career.


2022 Debuts


The Yankees farm system has recently been churning out lots of Major League talent. That is a good reputation to have, especially when making trades with other organizations.


In 2022, 16 Yankees prospects made their debut for nine different teams.

These players were:

Diego Castillo, Pirates

Gosuke Katoh, Blue Jays

Ron Marinaccio, Yankees

Anderson Severino, White Sox

Josh Smith, Rangers

Ezequiel Duran, Rangers

JP Sears, Yankees

Canaan Smith, Pirates

Dermis Garcia, A’s

Ken Waldichuk, A’s

Orlando Cabrera, Yankees

Donny Sands, Phillies,

Greg Weissert, Yankees

Hayden Wesneski, Cubs

Franklin German, Red Sox

Oswald Peraza, Yankees

Part of the trick of making trades is holding onto the best players and shipping off those whose value has already peaked.

Yankees traded Urshela and Sanchez, players who combined for a WAR of 4

and received IKF, Donaldson and Rortvedt.

Rortvedt didn't play.

IKF and Donaldson combined for a WAR of 5.4


I won't go into the benefit of moving Torres back to 2B

or the benefit derived from replacing Gary Sanchez at the catcher position.


what I will offer is that the trade added salary

"IKF and Donaldson combined for a WAR of 5.4"


That's using bWAR and as Andy pointed out a couple of days ago fWAR which uses a more accurate measure of dWAR is the better measure of WAR. That is important in this case because all of Donaldson's and IKF's WAR came from defense (both had negative offensive value) . FanGraph gives Donaldson 1.6 WAR and IKF 1.3 for a total of 2.9. In contrast Urshela had 2.4 fWAR and Sanchez 1.3 WAR so by a more accurate measure of WAR the Yankees lost the trade.


"the benefit derived from replacing gary Sanchez at the catcher position"


The Yankees could have simply non-tendered Sanchez. The trade with the Twins was completely…
