It seems like Chris Breen has been in the Yankees’ system for years, but in reality it has only been 2.5 seasons.

BBDP Yankees top seven shortstop prospects

Avelino_640x360_3awam655_1y6m11vi

The Yankees don’t have much in terms of promising shortstops at the upper levels, but they have more at the lower levels than I can ever remember in the past.
