What Do I Think About The Yankees Youngsters?


When thinking about Yankees prospects I can't help but smile. And I'm not even that big a prospect guy, unlike some of my collegues here. So to help sort things out I made a list, and decided to share it with you.

FYI, I decided to use the Top 30 list created by MLB.com, as well as include players on the big club that are under 27 years old.

Now, I did leave off some players under 27, who I felt simply weren't worth listing. That would be Chasen Shreve, Nick Goody, Johnny Barbato, Tyler Olson, Brandon Pinder, Aaron Hicks, and Ronald Torreyes.

A few notes before you read it below...

1. The number in parenthesis is their ranking on the Top 30.

2. An asterisk next to their name means they have played more than the position they are listed under. That isn't to say some players can't play other positions in the future.

3. There are players on the Top 30 List that have already appeared in the Majors.

4. I didn't split up the starting and relief pitchers. This wasn't supposed to be me trying to guess what role each guy would pitch in. So you can talk about that if you want.

Okay, so without any further ado, here you go...
