Age: 19 Height: 6-foot-2 Weight: 190-pounds Bats: Left Throws: Right Position: SS vs. OF BBDP Rank: 31 In 2011 the Yankees drafted Sam Stafford with their 2nd round draft pick. He didn't sign because he had shoulder issues and was not as healthy as advertised. As a result of that, the Yankees received a compensation pick in the 2012 2nd round. They ...
BBDP Nickname: Monty Python If the Yankees are good at developing one type of prospect it is relief pitchers. There have been several recent success stories, and there are a few good relief prospects on the brink of a promotion to the major leagues. One guy who is closer than you might think is Mark Montgomery. ...

The son of Derwin Williams, a former wide receiver for the New England Patriots, he was clearly the beneficiary of some ...

BBDP Nickname: "Rutzkrieg" Evan Rutckyj (pronounced ROOT-ski) recently made his debut for the Charleston River Dogs, his first start in full season ball. Most people have never heard of this tall, Canadian born left handed pitcher. If Extended Spring Training was any indication, however, people will know who he is by the end of this season. ...
Jose Ramirez is often remembered as the reason the Yankees were so willing to part ways with Arodys Vizcaino in the trade for Javier Vazquez (still bitter about that one). In 2010 it looked like the Yankees gave the Braves the wrong prospect, as Ramirez hit a wall and Vizcaino shot up the prospect rankings. ...
