Yankees MLB Pipeline Honors Jorge Mateo & Luis Severino

The New York Yankees 2015 season initially started out as a sort of reclamation story with the re-emergence's of both Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez. Michael Pineda was back and better than ever and Masahiro Tanaka looked healthy and sharp.... and then the injuries came. New York basically stood pat at the July 31st trading deadline and instead turned their attention and their playoff hopes to the farm system. After losing Teixeira for the season and Eovaldi for the remainder of the 2015 regular season the team handed things over to Greg Bird, Luis Severino and other Yankees prospects. Some of those prospects were honored recently by's Pipeline.

The Chicago Cubs rookie Kyle Schwarber and the Tampa Bay Rays rookie Blake Snell were named the top hitting and pitching prospects of the 2015 season respectively and a pair of Yankees prospects were also showcased. Jorge Mateo was named the best Yankees hitting prospect in the system while Luis Severino was named the best pitching prospect, surprise surprise.
