Baseball Prospectus Ranks Yankees Farm #21

The New York Yankees farm system has been ranked from Baseball Prospectus and their ranking is a far cry from Kylie McDaniel's #10 ranking. BP ranked New York's farm system as the 21st best in the majors according to their rankings. The Cubs, Twins and Dodgers took the Top Three spots in that order while the Yankees are up two spots from last season.

Here is an excerpt from the ranking from BP:

State of the System: A spending spree last summer in the international market, the depths of which might force a change in the international spending structure, has turned the Yankees system into one of the most balanced in the game. There isn’t a ton of impact talent near the majors, though Aaron Judge is emerging as a key piece of the future, and Luis Severino is going to make an impact soon, though 10 different scouts will give you 10 different answers on how. Then there’s the youth movement from last summer, most of whom are still teenagers and won’t be seen in the big leagues for a half-decade, if at all, but could make for some of the most intriguing GCL teams in the league’s history. - See more at:


  1. This is why I don't pay a lot of attention to prospect lists. 100 different people will rank the system 100 different ways. Even you and I disagree Daniel, and we're on the same page when it comes to the depth of the Yankees system.

    1. Many of these people only see the scouting reports, the All Star Game type events where they take one at bat or pitch one innings, etc. and they make their determinations. That's why these things are so subjective.

      That's why I am so high on Kylie McDaniel's list because he knows the Yankees system better than most.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
