Baseball America Releases Top 10 Yankees Prospects

Baseball America has been releasing their Top 10 Prospects for every team around Major League Baseball and this morning it was the Yankees turn. The Yankees have seen some changes to their prospects and organization over the past calendar year as Greg Bird and Luis Severino both graduated from prospect status while James Kaprielian and Kyle Holder were added via the draft. Luis Cessa and Chad Green were added via trades from the Detroit Tigers and Ronald Herrera was added from the San Diego Padres organization in the Jose Pirela trade. Did any of them make the cut for Baseball America?

You'll have to click HERE to see the entire list and write ups from Baseball America but you can see below for a small snippet. Thanks to Josh Norris for the list.

1. Jorge Mateo
2. Gary Sanchez
3. Aaron Judge
4. James Kaprielian
5. Domingo Acevedo
6. Rookie Davis
7. Tyler Wade
8. Robert Refsnyder
9. Wilkerman Garcia
10. Dustin Fowler


  1. I am suprised to see Sanchez below Mateo, I thought I was the only one that saw him as a very highly rated tooled player! Judge is about where I would have him and I would have had Refsy above Tyler Wade. That is just me, the way he has his list isn't anything that needs to be critiqued as the top 5 are interchangeable depending on the needs of a club.

    1. Sanchez is in AAA, tore up the AFL and is likely starting with the big league club in 2016. That apparently doesn't hold the same weight that it used to. Or they know more about Mateo than I do, and that is very possible.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
