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 ...

BBPD: Top 15 Starting Pitchers

SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game - World Team v United States

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 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.

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 ...
