Keith Law ranked his Major League farm systems and now has followed up releasing his Top 110 prospects in all of baseball and it included five New York Yankees. Gary Sanchez comes in at #18, Mason Williams comes in at #35, Tyler Austin comes in at #52, Slade Heathcott comes in at #57, and Jose A. Ramirez was listed just outside the top 100.
To give you a little bit of an idea where our prospects rank across the league Gary Sanchez, again #18, is only behind the Mets Travis D'Arnaud at #14 and Mike Zunino at #15 for catchers. Gary is three years younger then D'Arnaud and one year younger then Zunino and is at a lower level then both. Mason Williams, again #35, is ahead of the Red Sox Jackier Bradley Jr. at #40 and the Cubs Cuban import Jorge Soler at #42 and is only five spots behind the Reds Billy Hamilton. Tyler Austin is ranked higher then highly touted Padres Rymer Liriano at #54 and the Pirated Gregorio Polanco at #55. Heathcott is ranked at #57 but is a year younger then any of them.
Great signs coming out of the Yankees farm these days even if it is a little top heavy.
