  • To put the peak accumulated WAR of the Yankees’ IL in perspective, the stat suggests that if all 13 of those players had been unavailable for their 2018 roster, they would've finished the season in fourth in the AL East with a record of 67-95.
  • Since Mike Trout joined the team, the LA Angels of Anaheim have made the playoffs on just one occasion. He went 1-12 as the Angels suffered a 3-game sweep by the Royals in 2014.
