The New York Yankees are priming themselves for a deep playoff run in 2022, with the ultimate goal of winning the World Series, and bringing trophy No. 28 back to The Bronx.

When the calendar jumped to September, each Major League team was allowed to expand their rosters. As such, New York added such younger players as Oswald Peraza to their roster, and welcomed trade acquisitions like Scott Effross, Frankie Montas and more.

That said, when September becomes October, and the 2022 MLB Playoffs commence, the Yankees will have to trim their roster back down to 26 players, with a maximum of 13 pitchers joining the depth chart. The question now becomes: who makes the cut?

There are a few tough decisions that will have to be made, before the Yankees can begin their pursuit of a World Series title. One thing still remains true: New York has a great deal of talent, and depth, in their organization. That has been true all season, and was further strengthened by Brian Cashman's moves at the trade deadline.

What remains to be seen, however, is how this depth is implemented in a playoff series. Does New York have the kind of talent that can fill specific roles on the roster, to help propel the team deep into the playoffs?

From the bullpen, to the bench, there are a few players that are on the "bubble" heading into the final 10 days of the season. Here are ten such players (plus a bonus at the end) that are fighting for a roster spot, and my prediction as to whether or not they'll be on the roster come October.
