The 2019 Baseball Hall of Fame ballot was released on Monday and contained two Yankees making their debut.
Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte appear on the ballot for the first time while fellow Yankees pitcher Mike Mussina remains on the ballot for a sixth year.
Rivera, a 13-time All-Star, is the most likely of the three to be voted in the Hall of Fame. The former Yankees closer is MLB's all-time saves leader with 652 and had a career ERA of 2.21 (2.76 FIP).
He made his mark in the postseason, though, posting an 8-1 record with 42 saves and a 0.70 ERA (2.23 FIP) in 141 innings pitched and won five World Series titles. He was alsot the 1999 World Series MVP and 2003 ALCS MVP.
Pettitte, a three-time All-Star, appears on the ballot with a 256-153 record, 3.85 career ERA (3.74 fip), 2,448 strikeouts and a 6.6 K/9 ratio over 18 seasons with the Yankees and Astros. He also thrived in the postseason, posting a 19-11 record with a 3.81 ERA (4.09 FIP) in 276.2 innings pitched, five World Series titles and the 2001 ALCS MVP.
However, the left-hander admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs which could negatively impact his chances.
Meanwhile, Mussina hopes to continue to build on the traction he gained last year when he garnered 63.5 percent of the vote.
A five-time All-Star, Mussina holds a 270-153 record with a 3.68 career ERA (3.57 FIP), 2,813 strikeouts and a 7.1 K/9 ratio.
Also on the ballot for the first time is Roy Halladay, Todd Helton, Michael Young, Miguel Tejada, Placido Polanco and Juan Pierre.
Edgar Martinez, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens and Curt Schilling are repeating candidates on the ballot. Martinez is in his last year of eligibility and fell just shy of the necessary 75 percent of the vote, with 70.4 percent last year.
The results will be announced by Hall of Fame president Jeff Idelson on Jan. 22, 2019.
