Eric Jagielo Lone Yankee On Baseball America's Top 20 New York-Penn League Prospect List

Unlike Baseball America's list of Top 20 Prospects of the Gulf Coast League, which I mentioned last week, only one Yankee made their list of the Top 20 Prospects of the New York-Pennsylvania League.

That player was Eric Jagielo.

Jagielo, who was the team's top pick in the 2013 amateur draft, hit .266/.376/.451 with six home runs in 218 plate appearances. Here is the write-up on Eric...
He has a smooth lefthanded swing with good rhythm, and he can turn on a fastball or wait back for an offspeed pitch. His swing can get long at times, but he projects as a solid-average hitter with plus power potential. He’s a below-average runner, and he doesn’t figure to have the mobility to be a standout at third, but most evaluators give him a chance to stick at the position. He has enough arm strength and good accuracy.
Tomorrow Baseball America will release their list of the Top 20 Prospects of the South Atlantic League.
