TGP Prospects Month Top 29 Prospects List - #10 Brady Lail

Ladies and gentleman we have an announcement. We have officially reached the Top 10 of our Top 29 Prospects List here as a part of Prospects Month on The Greedy Pinstripes. We have technically counted down from 30 with James Pazos all the way to #11 Jacob Lindgren and today we enter the best of the best. Everyone talks about the Top 10, everyone releases at least their Top 10 Prospects List. The Top 10 is where it's at and we kick off the Top 10 with one of the best starting pitching prospects in the Yankees system, Brady Lail. Are you hyped yet?

Lail was drafted out of High School by the Yankees in the 18th round of the 2012 Draft and has done nothing but pitch his way all the way to Triple-A and the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders in 2015. Lail now has 37 innings under his belt at the highest minor league level and owns a career 3.13 ERA and 1.168 WHIP with the organization.

Lail is not going to strike out 20 in a game and he's not going to strike out 200 in a season but he is a durable starter that knows how to get advanced hitters out. He reminds me a ton of David Phelps and Adam Warren when they were in the Yankees organization and he reminded me a lot of Rookie Davis as well who was recently traded to the Cincinnati Reds for Aroldis Chapman. Those are not bad comparisons and those comparisons could land Lail in the Major Leagues as soon as 2016. Many don't necessarily know his name yet, he's not the sexy or breakout name like Davis or Luis Severino was, but I have a feeling that by the time we see Prospects Month 2017 you probably will.

    1. We agree on a lot, we disagree on some. I am glad to see Wade ranked out of the Top 15, I don't buy that he's that great. Domingo that low is something I can't agree with, but hey that's what makes it fun!

    2. Did you mean Domingo Acevedo? If so, you are right but listing him there was only because there is no need to push him...let him get his pitches under control better and if he can't, off to the BP which makes the BP something to behold with him, Dellin and Miller even if Chapman is gone next year.
      I think you know I really like the guy and he could be a very good pitcher no matter where he is, starter or BP!

  3. Daniel, in my judgement, the players to make it to the Show before September call ups...
    Nick Rumbelow, James Kaprielian, Ian Clarkin, Robert Refsnyder, Bryan Mitchell, Jacob Lindgren, Gary Sanchez, Brady Lail!
    At the least they should be on the Scranton Highway, don't you agree?

    1. All of them but Brady in my opinion. There is a ton of pitching in front of him. I guess he could come in the pen, can't see it as a starter though. Well unless a lot goes wrong.


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