Everyone knows the story of the New York Yankees. How they have won an unprecedented 27 World Series championships and 40 American League pennants. How anything less than another title every season is considered an absolute failure. How only the best players are even considered worthy of donning the famed pinstripes.
When you have such a storied franchise, you are bound to have players that carve their names into the record books, and fans will never forget them.
Players like Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle and of course Babe Ruth are remembered to this day, even by fans whose fathers and grandfathers weren't born during the days of those amazing players' careers.
But when you have a franchise with so many superstars, there is bound to be a plethora of great players who don't get nearly the amount of credit that they deserve. That's what this list consists of: those players who, at each of their respective positions, were greatly underrated. Players who were integral parts of some of the greatest Yankees eras or who were unfortunate enough to have excellent careers during one of the few spans of "title-less" years.
This list will construct a team of these underrated players: five starting pitchers, three relief pitchers, a catcher, a first baseman, a second baseman, a third basemen, a shortstop, a left fielder, a center fielder and a right fielder.
