Three Yankees in MLB Top 100 Pipeline has released their Top 100 prospects list just in time for Prospects Month, how very thoughtful of them right? The New York Yankees boasted three players on the Top 100 list, which can be seen here, and I'm sure you already know the names. Jorge Mateo, the Yankees top shortstop prospect, Aaron Judge, the Yankees top outfield prospect, and Gary Sanchez who is the Yankees top catching prospect.

Jorge Mateo was the top Yankees prospect on the list coming in as the 30th best prospect in all of Major League Baseball. Mateo was ranked 87th overall on's midseason list in 2015. Mateo stole 82 bases in 99 attempts in 2015 while posting a .278/.345/.392 triple slash.

Aaron Judge came in right behind Mateo at the 31st prospect position after reaching Triple-A in 2015. Judge actually took a step back from the 2015 midseason list that showcased Judge at the #17 ranking in all of MLB. Judge hit just .255 last season but he hit 20 home runs and knocked in 72 RBI in 124 games last season.

Finally on the list we have Gary Sanchez who ranked 59th after a strong campaign and Arizona Fall League showing last season. Sanchez took a large jump on the list after not showing up on the midseason ranking in 2015 and a .274 average with 18 home runs and 62 RBI in 93 games will do that for a guy.

That's the list. It's exciting to think that all three of these young men could help the team in the next season or two. The future is bright.
