New York Yankees Farm System Ranked 10th in MLB

The New York Yankees are finally starting to see the dividends of all those international free agent signings, draft signings and prospect hording that GM Brian Cashman has been doing. The farm is finally beginning to produce not only relief pitchers but positional players and starting pitchers as well. Luis Severino starts here in a couple of hours while Greg Bird is rotating with Alex Rodriguez and Mark Teixeira at the DH position and the first base position. Robert Refsnyder is a legitimate second base option going forward while there is a slew of talent at the team's highest farm affiliate stop, the Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders. No one thought we would see the day but with all this in mind a great baseball mind, Jim Callis, ranked that same Yankees farm system 10th in all of Major League Baseball.

The best farm system in Major League Baseball belongs to the Boston Red Sox after posting seven players in the Top 100 Prospects list according to The Top Five is rounded by the Los Angeles Dodgers who have the #1 overall prospect in Corey Seager, the Colorado Rockies, the Chicago Cubs and the Minnesota Twins.

Here is the write up regarding the Yankees on this free article SEEN HERE:

10. New York Yankees
Preseason Top 10: Not ranked
Prospects on Top 100 list: 3

The Yanks drew criticism for not wanting to part with right-hander Luis Severino (No. 16), outfielder Aaron Judge (No. 21) or first baseman Greg Bird at the Trade Deadline, but they upgraded their rotation by simply promoting Severino. New York has position prospects at every spot on the diamond, including speedy shortstop Jorge Mateo (No. 99), sweet-swinging second baseman Robert Refsnyder and slugging catcher Gary Sanchez.
