While the Astros had to fight off the Rays in Game 5 on Thursday, the Yankees have been waiting around since Monday after finishing off a sweep of the Twins. This well-rested roster also gets back center fielder Aaron Hicks, who has been on the Injured List since early August, and CC Sabathia, who will be available out of the bullpen after being left off of the Division Series roster. Luke Voit and Tyler Wade are the odd men out.

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