MLB.com Top 100 Prospects List Has a Few Familiar Yankees Faces on It


MLB.com released their new and updated Top 100 prospects list for the 2017 season and there are more than a few familiar Yankees faces on it. There are eight to be exact, six that are still within the Yankees system and two that were traded away at or before the July 31st trade deadline. For the complete list head over to MLB.com to check it out while I focus on the Yankees-related material here on the blog for you.

Here are the Yankees and their positions on the rankings:

Gleyber Torres - #1
Clint Frazier - #23
Chance Adams - #55
Estevan Florial - #81
Justus Sheffield - #83
Miguel Andujar - #95

And here are two prospects the Yankees traded away at the trade deadline that made the list:

Blake Rutherford - #41
Dustin Fowler - #69

Anyone else surprised to not see Jorge Mateo on this list? I was, I checked it three times to make sure that Mateo wasn’t on the list. I wonder what that’s about. Anyway here is the MLB.com scouting report on Gleyber Torres who took the top spot on the list at just 20-years old. Enjoy.


“Torres has exceptionally quick hands that allow him to excel at the dish and in the field. He's very advanced at the plate, recognizing pitches well, displaying patience and using the entire field. His power projections seem to increase each year as he adds strength and experience, and he now looks like he'll deliver 20-plus homers on an annual basis in his prime.”
