The Yankees traded some of the flops

Once an inseparable part of the World Series, the Pinstripes also encountered a challenging phase, compelling them to trade Aaron Hicks and Josh Donaldson following their demolishing performances. 

Their paycheck is still scratching the Yankees’ back

According to the report of Spotrac, the Yankees will pay $14.760 million collectively to both of them. Despite Hicks's average performance of .188 hitting and 5 RBI in 28 games, the team is subjected to pay him $8.760 million. On the contrary, Donaldson delivered a hitting average of .142 and is set to receive $6 million. 

Their Fall Classics signings are significantly impacted

Apart from these two athletes, there are also icons like Giancarlo Stanton and Carlos Rodon, who have made a big scratch on the Yankees' budget without becoming significantly productive. On the contrary, contracts like these posed hindrances before their inclusion to rare talents.
