Who are the top Yankee prospects in the farm system? Normally, I would provide a spring re-ranking around this time of the year. But let’s be honest: there’s not going to be much difference from my fall list. So, to keep things interesting, we here at TYA decided to do what we do best and give you a wide array of learned opinions. Matt, Michael, Brad, Alex, Domenic, Eric and I all ranked our top-20 Yankee prospects.
We’ll also be posting a round table discussion about various prospect questions throughout the week.
Below are those rankings, with the combined average ranking in the far-right column:
Some interesting contrasts:
- The Top-6 was pretty consistent, with all of Bichette, Williams, Sanchez, Banuelos, Betances, and Campos appearing in 6 of 7 ranking in one order or another. Brad was the only exception, and clearly is not a Bichette believer, ranking him 19th.
- Angelo Gumbs turned out to be a highly controversial prospect. He appeared in the top-12 on three rankings, including #8 in Domenic’s rankings, but did not appear at all on 3 of 7 rankings.
- You’ve got a pretty even split between 9 pitchers and 11 hitters. Every pitcher is currently a starter, although only one, Manuel Banuelos, throws left-handed.
