Weekly Check In: Jorge Mateo

Jorge Mateo survived another trading deadline thankfully and will remain with the organization at least through the remainder of the 2015 season. Brian Cashman has placed Mateo in the “untouchable” ring of Yankees prospects despite being reportedly willing to include him in a deal for Craig Kimbrel and Jedd Gyorko. Now with the trade winds no longer blowing in his ear he can prepare for a long offseason after a bit of a breakout season in 2015.

With the Low-A Charleston Riverdogs and the High-A Tampa Yankees Mateo has hit the ball better than most people expected and has ran up and down the bases basically at will. As you can see below Mateo has compiled a whopping 82 stolen bases between the two stops and even raised his overall batting average and on-base percentages to .278 and .345.

Mateo has defied the odds in 2015 and has shattered expectations so expect him to be all over post-season Top 100 prospects lists and at or near the top of almost every Yankees top prospects list.
