The New York Yankees are taking on the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series, which begins Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022. 

The Yankees beat the Cleveland Guardians in the ALDS 3 games to 2. 

The Bronx Bombers finished the 2022 regular season with a 99–63 record and the American League East title, earning them a bye in the first round of the reformulated MLB postseason.

The Yankees are focusing on winning the club's 28th World Series title. The Yankees' last trophy came in 2009 against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Who Made the Yankees' ALCS Roster?

Manager Aaron Boone announced his series roster on Wednesday. The team is carrying 13 pitchers, seven infielders, four outfielders, and two catchers. 

Right-hander Frankie Montas, who missed the ALDS with a shoulder injury, was added to the ALCS roster. Left-hander Lucas Luetge, who did not pitch in the ALDS, was kept off the roster to make room.

Outfielder Aaron Hicks was off the roster. Hicks suffered a season-ending left knee injury when he and shortstop Oswaldo Cabrera collided in Game 5 of the ALDS.

Marwin Gonzalez, who went 0 for 1 with a strikeout in the ALDS, was also dropped.

Rookie infielder Oswald Peraza and rookie right-hander Greg Weissert were added for the series.

Several players who weren't on the ALDS roster remain out for the ALCS, including former closer Aroldis Chapman, who missed a mandatory team workout on Oct. 7 and was then told to stay away from the team.

Here is the full roster rundown:


  • Miguel Castro
  • Gerrit Cole
  • Nestor Cortes
  • Domingo Germán
  • Clay Holmes
  • Jonathan Loáisiga

Where Are the Yankees Seeded?

Under the new MLB playoff format, six teams from each league earn playoff spots: three division champions and three wild card teams. 

By winning the AL East and having the second-best record (99–63) among division winners, the Yankees are the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. They had a first-round bye and advanced directly to the AL Division Series, for which they had home-field advantage.

However, Houston went 106–56 in the regular season and won the AL West, making them the No. 1 seed in the AL. So the Astros have home-field advantage in the ALCS.
