TGP Top 29 Prospects List - #19 Cale Coshow

Welcome to the teens as we countdown our Top 29, well technically Top 30, Prospects List here as a part of our Prospects Month. There is an absolute ton of talent in this Yankees system and there is already an absolute ton of talent on my personal list. I have a feeling I have shaken things up a bit ranking Tyler Wade so low and I may catch some flak for ranking this relief pitcher so high, Mr. Cale Coshow.

Coshow has been in the Yankees system since the 2013 MLB First Year Players Draft and has worked his way all the way to the Trenton Thunder of Double-A. With 33.1 innings pitched in Double-A last season he could easily be in Triple-A before the temperatures really start lighting up your thermometer and in a pinch he could conceivably be MLB ready by the end of the season.

Coshow has seen his K numbers go down the more he has risen through the system which can be worrisome but he gets players out, he doesn't walk a ton and the sky is the limit on this 23-year old. For these reasons and the fact that he is so close to being considered MLB ready I have him ranked #19 and one spot ahead of my personal favorite relief pitching prospect right now, Chance Adams.

19. Cale Coshow
20. Chance Adams
21. Miguel Andujar

  1. With the Yankees shortage of high-end starters, I think they are trying to make a very good BP pitcher into a starter.
    I really like him as a BP pitcher much better, he is another Evo with much better C&C but, only two pitches. He has a high 90s fastball and a nasty slider with a changeup on the weak side yet but is working on it. He could be a starter IF he gets his Change under control he would surely be more valuable to the club. Just think, of a starting rotation of Tank, Evo, Severino, Cale Coshow, and one of Pineda, Nova or someone we have ready from the farm...great look to me.
    Think of a BP with Chapman, Miller, Dellin, Lindgren and Cale Coshow, that would be unbelievable.


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