Yankees Post Aroldis Chapman Trade Top Prospects List


The New York Yankees got quite the haul to start the week for left-handed closer Aroldis Chapman including shortstop Gleyber Torres, outfielder Billy McKinney, right-handed pitcher and former Yankee Adam Warren and switch-hitting center fielder Rashad Crawford. Would any of these three prospects, obviously Warren is no longer a prospect, crack the Yankees Top 10 Prospects list? In a word, yes.

1. Gleyber Torres
2. Jorge Mateo
3. Gary Sanchez
4. Aaron Judge
5. James Kaprielian
6. Billy McKinney
7. Dustin Fowler
8. Ian Clarkin
9. Wilkerman Garcia
10. Miguel Andujar
11. Blake Rutherford
12. Tyler Wade

We did 11 just because, I wanted to go 12 as well. That's how you know the farm system is getting stacked. It's a sight for sore eyes ladies and gents. A sight I have been wishing for since, what, 2005?

  1. No McKinney? I know they aren't the best at ranking prospects, but MLB.com has Billy as the Yankees' #5. So leaving him out of the top 11 seems off. No?

    1. You know what? I wrote this before the deal was "official" with the intent of coming back and making any adjustments once the names were released and obviously that never happened.

      You are 100% correct, McKinney should be on this list. I'm updating now. Thank you.
