BBDP 2015 Breakout candidate: Chris Breen

chris breen

It seems like Chris Breen has been in the Yankees’ system for years, but in reality it has only been 2.5 seasons. He hasn’t quite made the jump yet from marginal prospect to legit prospect, but I think he’s about to do just that. One of the cool things about Breen is his positional versatility. ...

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 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 ...

2015 Minor League roster predictions

YANKEES-minor-league

Here’s my best shot at what the rosters will look like next year. The major caveat here is that injuries will happen and I will inevitably be wrong in quite a few spots here. There will also be the minor league free agents the Yankees sign, and whatever International Free Agents the Yankees can get ...

BBDP Yankees Top 15 Minor League Outfielders

aaronjudge5

It’s been a big year for Yankees minor league outfielders. Tyler Austin finally turned it around, Aaron Judge emerged as a force, and Jake Cave became a household name for prospect enthusiasts. As with any year, there were some regressions, and a few guys who increased their stock. Overall the outfield is becoming a deep ...

BBDP: Yankees top six third base prospects

andujar

After reviewing the third base prospects in this system, it appears this isn’t the strongest position for the Yankees’ farm. That could change rather quickly, as the international free agent crop from this year contains a few big name third basemen, but for now the pickings are slim. There is still strength at the top ...

BBDP Yankees top seven second basemen

refsnyder

With the emergence of Robert Refsnyder, the second base crop had a major boost this season, but that was just the beginning. Jose Pirela had a career year and Ty McFarland emerged as a great second baseman at 10th round value. Junior Valera came over from the DSL and performed well, and Bryan Cuevas hit ...

BBDP: Yankees Top Five Catching Prospects

luis torrens

The catching landscape has certainly changed in the Yankees' minor leagues. They don't have quite the same depth, but there's still a lot of promise at the top. The depth for the major league team is really good. They have Cervelli as the back up, and JR Murphy and Romine behind him. All are serviceable ...
