We all know the Yankees are a very high-profile team, full of big-name players. We also all know that a lot of those players have some pretty hefty contracts, a lot of which can only be described as "absurd".
However, for all the lucrative contracts the Yankees have on the books, they also have a bunch of young players earning much more reasonable salaries, mostly due to the inexperience and lack of service time in the big leagues for those players.
So, in the grand scheme of things, which Yankees players are most deserving of the salaries they will take in this year?
Well, that's what I'm here to determine. This is a ranking of all of the current Yankees players based on their current contracts. Which player do the Yankees get the most from per buck (or maybe per million bucks)?
Well, we'll get there, but first let's start off with which player they get the least from—based on his contract of course.
*Please note that I am not ranking players like Brett Gardner, Michael Pineda, and Mariano Rivera at all, based on the fact that they were each forced to miss almost the entire season due to major injuries. With Joba Chamberlain having just recently made his season debut, I have also left him off of the list.
