BBDP 2015 Breakout Candidate: Drew Bridges

BBDP 2015 Breakout candidate: Domingo Acevedo

This year Luis Severino exploded onto the prospect scene with a dominant season as he blew through three levels of the minors. Without question, he was the breakout pitcher in the system. In 2015, Domingo Acevedo has the best chance of anyone to be that guy. He’s got the best potential of any pitcher in ...

BBDP 2015 Breakout candidate: Chris Breen

BBDP 2015 Breakout candidate: Ty Hensley

Another year has gone by and now it’s time to profile the guys most likely to break out in 2015. Last year was a “meh” year for me, going 3/6 if you’re being generous. Abiatal Avelino got hurt in the midst of his breakout season, Brad Lail definitely broke out, and Caleb Smith made it ...

Yankees signed Headley so they could trade Prado

MLB: Texas Rangers at New York Yankees

There was a time at the beginning of the season when it seemed like a foregone conclusion that the Yankees would sign Chase Headley. Amidst rumors that Headley had a four year, $65 million offer on the table, the Yankees were seen to be out of the running at some point this offseason. Fast forward ...

Brian Cashman and the Yankees have made a flurry of moves recently, including trades and free agent signings. It’s clear that the Yankees are trying to get younger, and in the process hopefully better. Now that the dust has settled on these moves, it’s time to take a step back and see if Cashman and ...

Yankees top 50 prospects: 2014 postseason edition

railriders

2014, as previously mentioned, was a big year for the Yankees’ farm. A few players stepped into the prospect limelight, including Luis Severino and Aaron Judge. After the Arizona fall league, I think Greg Bird can be included in that discussion as well. The Yankees made a huge splash internationally which should provide a major ...
