Baseball America's Top 10 Yankees Prospects

Baseball America has released their annual top 10 list of Yankees prospects and scouting reports for the players. The list is free for all, seen HERE, but you will need a subscription to read the scouting reports unfortunately. To save you the click here is the list from BA:

1. C Gary Sanchez
2. OF Slade Heathcott
3. OF Mason Williams
4. C JR Murphy
5. 3B Eric Jagielo
6. OF Aaron Judge
7. LHP Ian Clarkin
8. 1B Greg Bird
9. RHP Luis Severino
10. 2B Gosuke Katoh

First off I have some serious issues with this list and I do not agree whatsoever. The fact that Tyler Austin, taking a step back or not, is not even in the top 10 is a disgrace. Also the fact that Rafael DePaula did not make the top 10 is also a pretty serious snub in my eyes. Greg Bird is also a lot higher on my list, at least ahead of Aaron Judge and Ian Clarkin who I have later in my top 10. Oh well what can you do, to each their own right?

BA also released their list of top 15 players under 25 years old for the Yankees and the list, unsurprisingly, contains no current major league players. The top 10 on this list are identical to the top 10 listed above and are followed, in order, by LHP Manny Banuelos, SS Abiatal Avelino, RHP Jose Ramirez, RHP Jose Campos, and RHP Rafael DePaula.
