Four Yankees Make John Sickels' Top 150 Prospects

Four members of the New York Yankees have made John Sickels' Top 150 Prospects list recently with Masahiro Tanaka, Gary Sanchez, and a new faces in Eric Jagielo and Aaron Judge making the list. Sickels is a member of SB Nations's Minor League Ball and is one of the prospect opinions that I truly take to heart with everything I read, he's legit when it comes down to the farm.

Masahiro Tanaka was at the top of the list and received a Grade A from Sickels after coming to New York from Japan. That's a nice change from Byron Buxton, Oscar Tavares, or Xander Bogaerts being at or near the top spot.

Gary Sanchez is ranked at #38 and received a B+ rating, Jagielo was ranked at #122 and received a B rating, and Aaron Judge is ranked at #145 and received a B- rating. Tyler Austin and Greg Bird are said to be right there on the bubble of making the list as well, so much for the Yankees having a weak and barren farm system.
